If it works without any drawbacks to battery performance and life, that'll be huge with electric cars. It's another hurdle down to full electric in metro areas, bringing us ever closer to that.

I honestly don't know how that happened, it showed one copy of that quote originally :-/


Head on, apply directly to the forehead...

That'll go nicely with all the other big breakthroughs that are perpetually 10 years away.

SurfaceTension: Scale that up to car batteries and the internal combustion engine will be dead.


There's a few other steps before it has to get on the cart. Extreme temperatures, rural/remote areas and so on. But it is another big step towards it.

Yes, then I can spend over $50 charging my car at my complex

Have a hard data point: here in SoCal, 80 miles of electricity cost me $2.48 at a Chargepoint two days ago.

I have a hard data point here. The charge station says it cost me $50 or more for a full charge.

Yeah, you're gonna have to prove that.

No problem, I'll take a screenshot of charge cost of the station next time I walk by them. It's at least 50 cents a kwh if you pay into the membership.

[memegenerator.net image 250x250]

You're seriously claiming that a charging station costs 4 times the average rate (in the U.S.)? Furthermore, the largest batteries in an electric vehicle are in a Tesla, at 100 kwh. Meaning using your ridiculous number, you'd be getting charged $2.00 or more per kwh.

Free suggestion, switch to a different zombie log-in and try again.


You don't know shiat.
