<<Batteries store energy. I don't know what the limit is in some given volume. But I doubt we can exponentially just cram more and more electrons into a given space in the same way that in computers we cut the required number of electrons in half a couple of dozen times.>>

I'm sure everyone has seen pictures of the fires that can be caused by the short circuiting of a conventional lithium battery. Now consider what would happen with a battery storing 1,000 times that amount of energy.

The practical limits on battery technology may have different limits that you think.

But perhaps they could be used as a replacement for conventional chemical warheads.
