    I will happily go.EV when it's pretty much as quick to charge at a servo as it is to fill the petrol tank...ie when the next round of battery tech comes in.

    Cheers

    lets say, you have a 100AH battery thats at 0%
    and you want to charge it in 6min.

    your charge rate would be 1000Amps. thats pretty high. might be possible with super capacitors?

    I'm no physicists but I wonder if the traditional laws of charge rates v amp hours will apply to the crop I'm talking about. They might. I just dont know and haven't had the time to look into it. See these for example.

    This one is damned interesting.

    Mind you, to get one big enough to drive a car, we will need totally autonomous vehicles and lots of breweries along the way.
    Unless otherwise stated, this post is the opinion of Mick_Marsh and should be read accordingly.

    Same Old Same old , The active constituent of the AdBlue is Urea , It would actually work if you ****ed in the AdBlue tank except they have sensors to make sure you don't.

    We recently did some pricing and could go 6.5 kw of solar plus all the batteries we need for about $18,000. Plug in a $30,000 or so Nissan Leaf or Mitsubishi EV with a 250-300 km range and our daily motoring costs would be covered. And the Defender with its 1000 km range would still be in the garage. All good.
