How about a 1,000 km iMiev?

Maybe I'm too picky, but I'd really prefer a lead-free design.

Clueless marketeers, using the soundtrack of an ICE vehicle as the BEV starts and drives off at the 00:40sec mark. Doesn't every BEV driver now just cringe when hearing an ICE car start?

They're addressing their FlashBattery being able to quickly absorb a high power jolt, but the allied issue with EV rapid charging is having a very-high energy source available and then being able to dump it quickly into the vehicle without blowing up the source or connection between the two. Last night I spent quite a few hours freezing way up in the remote Sierras at an RV campground resetting their (expletive deleted) 50A circuit breaker which was popping open as I was trying to charge Tesia (my Tesla) … I had to dial the current waaay down… 32A finally held. :twisted: These FlashBattery people are talking transferring energy at thousands of amps.

Rapid charging is only needed when doing an extended and continuous trip (like Rick on Route 66), whereas ordinary L1 and L2 normally meets most people's needs; that said, this would be really useful technology for the commercial industry, especially long-distance truckers.

As far as this FlashBattery is concerned, to paraphrase Elon, "bring me a fully-developed production-ready battery to test, and then we'll talk".

We should be afraid and the notion that it will happen quickly at some point is even more important. Perhaps those with more ability to calculate when the oceans are maxed out as to CO2 can help. But it brings to mind the notion of "phase change".
