"Researchers are hoping to one day use sodium carbonate batteries to power your home, car, etc.

"... sodium carbonate is 1.000 times more abundant and it's inexpensive compared to lithium...per ton sodium costs $250, while lithium costs $7,000."

"...there is a downside to sodium carbonate batteries...The sodium element is three times heavier than lithium, so the battery would become slightly heavier."
