I don't know, but how about those cool UFOs battling in the skies above Australia. Too bad that one of them crashed into a tree.

The device is not a battery since it can't be recharged. The device is a power cell and once expended, it has to be replaced. And at 5000 "POUNDS" and not dollars, for replacement, it is very expensive.

swappable battery concept is appealing, tho quality control would be important, and not necessarily too difficult

weve all swapped lp tanks, gotten home and found, after breaking the seal, the new swapped can is shitted out

hate to find out the battery's bad, when outback in the bush

Night wing, itís not dead when done. Read closer, you can recycle them so as was said, drive in, swap your unit and go. I could use one for over 3 months.

Also heís quoting 7p (9 cents) per mile so not bad there either. So maybe the unit costs $5k but it clearly can be reused.

Also get rid of lithium and other nasty materials. We will see how it goes.
