Watts Cheapest?

Humans tap about watts "cheapest" to buy... While I suggest s/b watts "cheapest" to own/operate PER MILE (kilometer). (<- Period) Comment?

^^ In Canada, many "talk funny", eh? EVer tried to speak with someone from the outports of Newfoundland? Betcha lots of folks would recognize anyone with a NYC "accent"... Same with spellings of words in "English"... like someone from China writes in Engrish... It's a pretty mangled and blended language, eh? EVer been through a "port"? Cities in England lousy with words from Scandinavia... who liked to travel... (Big slave trade in Belfast...) Anyway... lots of softwares offer "english" for different nationalities. Had a home room Math teacher from India... First day, explained plans to teach a thing "Rici-Procals"... and had to demonstrate with numbers 3/4 versus 4/3... STILL get a kick hearing folks from India speak "english". :)

But still hope you might agree... it's not cost to buy... but total costs to buy *including* costs to operate and maintain over useful life... Up front/selling prices often result in Operating Expenses. So watt *I* look for in better design and construction in about anything... and fully expect a higher selling price with "costs build in". It's like watching "Sondors People" buying "cheap" then spending all their time tapping about fixes and upgrades.

....and those whose Sondors ebikes collecting dust in the shed whos owners may or may not have actually researched a little bit, with cost of upgrading then stored it, or went out and bought a decent new or used ebike, or who went ahead and built their own.

....and those who bought a cheap RC balance charger, but perhaps some put up with how slowly it fills the battery or went ahead and went all out with a Satiator from Grin Tech, or a multi-hundo iCharger.

....and those who bought a bso from Walmart, and say the plastic lever broke or any number of other problems associated with bso's

....and those who bought a Tesla and realized Elon tricked them because they can't work on their own car.

....and those who bought........... oh the list goes on...........

My ejuice is ready for some cruisin'
