Lithium Polymer cells of some sort, ever evolving towards higher storage densities.  It's an exciting and changing space.
Relating it to canards again... a Long-EZ happens to hold the record for the fasted electric-powered aircraft.  It was mentioned there that he had to land early since "a cell inside the pack became damaged" which I interpret to mean "was about to explode or catch on fire" as those LiPo batteries tend to do.

They're still working the kinks out.  :)
