Yes, but with "small blemishes" what ever this could be.....

3 dollars and above is still common.

You have to remember the Aussies are the land of smoke and mirrors.I worked
for Orbital Engine for several years and that was their motto.

I think you're misreading the name. It's not Silver cell, but Sliver
cell. It gets its name from the tiny silicon slivers used to make the
cells. It's a "silicon only" cell in every sense of the word -- the only
thing unique about it is its tiny size. There is no silicon/silver
hybrid, at least not here. It works very well in the lab, but because
the cells are so small I anticipate that they'll have some trouble
getting it into high-volume production. On paper it has tremendous
potential for reducing costs, but if they have any problems with
production it might not work out that way.

 I thought I read "sliver" Cell not "silver" which means tiny slivers.
