SolidEnergy - 13 Wh in 29 g li-ion cell - any independent confirmation?

This company is claiming 13 Wh in a 29 g li-ion cell:

Quite outrageous. Is this yet another startup soon to be forgotten or is there any indepent confirmation?

They also claim they make 5000 a month of them

After they made press last August claiming a breakthrough, I checked up on them every couple of weeks. It has been crickets and had been assuming this was another false hope. Perhaps it still is, but happy to have hope still alive.

Edit: ... also, this is for a solid state lithium battery, not Li-ion

Excuse me, I guess I wasn't right either. This is Li-Metal which is apparently different than solid state lithium... I guess I need to go read some.

I did find this:
I contacted SES (Solid Energy Systems) yesterday, because the specs of the Hermes battery cell had a typo, I used the opportunity to ask them when do they expect to have it commercially available. The response I got was that it will be available mid next year in commercial drones.

... yet in August 2016 they said it would be available by the end of that year in drones. This also sounds very different from actively producing 5000/cells a month (and what is one "cell"?)

Above link pointed to this recent interview:

... that doesn't really provide any details.
