Electric cars are really popular here in Seattle too. Lots of money here - I think it's more the "Save the planet" green thing. Maybe. I have a gas car and no way to recharge an electric one. Those E-bikes/boards/scooters have taken over my nice walking trail. It's a problem.

On the Bus!

I would love an electric car, but I would have to rewire my house, plus I don't have a garage. I will settle for driving a hybrid at the moment. It was fortuitous that I purchased one as a used car last spring when gas was still two dollars and change per gallon.

On the bus, coffee in hand.

Happy riding all!

Do you know where we all could meet with our electric cars & electric guitars?
Electric Avenue...but, not in a storm!

They are very popular here too, esp Teslas. My nephew just bought one. I haven't talked to him to see if he likes it or not. I hope so!

There are some hopeful lines of development with battery technology, one of which involves using sulphur instead of lithium. It's much cheaper than lithium and holds around 4 times the charge. There are some obstacles to overcome with it though.

Random recollection re batteries: Leclanché cell was a name that just came bubbling up from high-school science.
Used to draw diagrams of 'em as I recall.

Carry on.

Looks like they happily stumbled upon a way to keep the sulfur component stable.

On! Interesting stuff. Some years ago I was at a science park north of Oxford where they were doing research into sulphur-ion batteries and they were trying to develop what they referred to publicly as an umbrella system to stop contamination of the cells (in private they described it as working like a condom rather than an umbrella but even scientists can be coy)
