Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

(Bloomberg) -- The world’s biggest lithium-ion battery is about to get even bigger, with Tesla Inc. set to beef up capacity at the Hornsdale site in South Australia. The system will be expanded by 50% to 150 megawatts, according to an announcement from Neoen SA, the French company that operates the...

Re: Toyota will use Tokyo Olympics to debut solid-state battery electric vehicle

Haha yeah you're right what does Toyota know about making practical, affordable cars by the millions? RIP Tesla. That's the common opinion of skeptics - "once big auto wants Tesla's market, Tesla is no more." Well, big auto, sort of tried to go after Tesla. VW/Porsche, Audi, BMW, GM. We've seen wha...

Re: Toyota will use Tokyo Olympics to debut solid-state battery electric vehicle

Ford, Toyota, Daimler, Volkswagen, Renault, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Hyundai are investing hundreds of millions of dollars in solid-state battery research and development. I guess that's one way to achieve investor confidence - "look guys, we're behind Tesla by 5-10 years now, but once our R&D on the...

Re: Can EVs survive without subsidies ?

We can't fly to/from Mars on a battery. Well, you could, but it would have to be a fairly large one, to run an ion drive. Would take a while, too, as they're fairly low acceleration rate engines. I actually doubt it would be possible to matter the size, as you'd have to scale other components as we...

Re: Can EVs survive without subsidies ?

Let's say it takes two gallons of gasoline to make one gallon of butanol. Is it worth it? Not worth burning gasoline to make butanol, but that's where I said context is important. Two things can make it practical: excess of whatever goes into making it (of course making an assumption we're talking ...

Re: Can EVs survive without subsidies ?

Supposedly buthanol can directly replace gasoline. There were attempts to produce is biologically just like methanol and ethanol, but for some reason it didn't go anywhere. Did you mean butanol? Both butanol and ethanol are not very good fuels; they take almost as much energy to make as they yield....

No, they don't. Gas cars run on gasoline. You can mix a bit of ethanol in there, but that's it.

Re: No future for charging networks ?

FUD - Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt. Once again, I'm not sure where you got 4 hours from - if you get 160 miles in 10 minutes of charging, that's less than an hour of charging for entire trip (assuming you start it with a full "tank"). Also if you do manage to make a 14 hour trip with only two 5 minute s...

Yes, I know. But that means you just have to stop again sooner than you should. Sorry, these cars make no sense on road trips and will only get worse when there are more of them out there to clog the chargers. Oh, horror! I guess you've never seen how people travel in the US.

Re: No future for charging networks ?

OK, 75 minutes to full charge on a supercharger... If one is available... vs 5 minutes to fuel a petrol car. Good luck with that. But I do like the Teslas for commuting. You don't need a full charge. Teslas can charge much faster in the lower range of SoC, getting as much as 250km of range in 10 mi...

Except then you need several hours to "fill up" instead of 5 minutes... that is IF you can find an unoccupied charger. If you aren't first in line for the charger might as well get a room for the night. Several hours ? Ever heard of Tesla ? :) And I'll believe 1000+ KM range batteries in a meaningf...

Note that bluetooth can also be used for PC connectivity. You just need to pair your devices (virtual com port will appear in device manager). Yup.

How difficult would have it been to add the cell voltages to the bluetooth data stream in the first place?
There are multiple ways how this can be done (with or without the vendor's involvement), and none are difficult. Who do you expect to do it though ?
