Didn't Giliigan's Island cover this in 1964?

So I was playing with a diagnostic dongle that connects to my Prius Prime, and I believe the traction motor voltage was above 300V. Under electric power at moderate acceleration, it would be pulling more than 120 Amps, or 36kW, which is the power of a moderately sized AM radio station (~49 horsepower). I have to respect that. The last time I looked was some time ago, so I'm not sure if the voltage was ~375V. But the MSB was 3. (I'd made screen recordings of the current draw to watch it while accelerating & decelerating because I'm just about the coolest hep cat around, and that's how we roll). I have yet to submerge the car, though. Suffice to say, you can die with a dozen Amps in salt water if you're especially unlucky (e.g., the circuit closing between one arm & another across your heart).

// My heirs would obviously report how that worked out; I'll put a note in my wallet to that effect.

Nah. Elon will disconnect it with his minisub.

The best two years of my life were the two spent living in Newport Beach.

Of course, I've lived most of the rest of my life in the Central Valley, so my bar may be lower than yours....

Yeah, no way being submerged in a foot of salt water could possibly damage a metal car.

Could the beachfront part of the town be sinking a bit? Yeah, yeah, I know... sea level rise. But was wondering if how they built it up along the shoreline has flattened out a bit.

If you turn on your electric blanket you are contributing to climate change you monster.

Unfortunately, all that desalinated water sitting on top of the cold, heavily saline water will freeze in giant sheets like in Antarctica, which means the ice sheets will advance and retreat erratically. Probbly result of global warming is a new ice age and it could happen faster and sooner than expected given the long-in-the-tooth interglacial we are in and have been prolonguing. Thin ice is useless for hunters and polar bears and transportation, but it makes a great mirror to reflect heat into space, changing the albedo of the sea greatly and unpredictbly. Ice and snow are not our friends except when they are. They're more frenemies, carassing you gently one moment and hitting you with sucker punches the next.

The beauty of dying in a green vehicle due to climatic acceleration.

On the bright side at a certain point the water will desalinate a bit from melting ice sheets right?

Does a regular car battery electrocute people when a regular car is submerged?

No. Low voltage.  That water may be a more important problem.


Yeah, those people bombing through the salt water in their cars are in for a hard lesson in electrolytic galvanization. They don't get snow with the accompanying salted roads, so they likely have no idea the treat that awaits them.

make me some tea: TwowheelinTim: pup.socket: Looks like it is literally built on the sand, why expect differently?

It is.

They shouldn't.

The barrier islands are the first to go under.


It's a sand bar on the delta at the mouth of the Santa Ana River carrying tons and tons of sand and debris down from the San Gabriel Mountains, through the garbage laden inland empires of San Bernardino and Reeferside Counties. Yeah, it's as disgusting as it sounds. Why people pay so much money to live there is beyond my understanding.

Is a regular car battery 375V nominal?

My dad rented a vacation house there for a couple summers in '89 and '91. It's about as summer-y a place as  you can think of.
