Many of these research projects done by academic institutions are there to make money for those institutions. A lot of them are there just to file a patent in hopes that someone will implement something that they can sue for. For this purpose they create a separate company. Transfer the patent to it and aggressively sue the infringer.
This is a huge problem in the telecommunications sector. Some institutions have written purely theoretical papers that are unfeasible to implement with current technology. Then they request a patent for their invention. There were cases where those decades old patents were used to sue for modern technologies. They only need the tech to be in the ballpark of the initial patent so they can sue.
With batteries it is different - you have to provide a proof of concept. That usually means creating a microscopic element of the battery. Then testing it and extrapolating the likely end result.
The most noteworthy research is the one that leads to the team creating a company to implement the product. Just like in this case. Or if they at least devise a path to manufacturing.
It would be sic if they create a phone battery with the stated parameters.

there were many breakthroughs during the time, but none got into an actual product because costs are unreasonable.

Many breakthroughs do happen, just by the time they do happen, they tend to be incremental improvements

Actually... breakthroughs are slowly creeping into current batteries. We have LFP which are cheaper and safer than traditional ones, and Sodium ones are actually going to be commercialized this same year!

We are starting to reap the benefits of great battery technology.
Can't wait to see what the next few years will bring.

After the solid-state battery from the VW subsidiary PowerCo that can hold 95% capacity after 1,000 charge cycles, now comes a Harvard research breakthrough that tops its longevity. The new solid-state battery discovery retains 80% capacity after 6,000 cycles.
