Still, it is interesting to watch how these systems evolve.

Improvements to battery technology, efficiency, and economy are all areas that would really make alternative energy systems more attractive. I remember several years ago seeing an article envisioning a car body that was not only the battery but a solar cell all in one composite. Think of an "egg" shell that was one big battery and solar panel. Or my more reasonable dream to just have a 4" (+-) thick battery that was in the floor of my egg. Large capacity and all the weight down low balanced right over the axle. Oh yeah!

There is a long way from "a vision" to a real world implementation that does not cost a fortune, or is even possible at all.

I think it is great that there are some super rich, or thinking themselves super rich who are willing to give the "bleeding edge" technologies a try and pave the way. Just don't force me, or other average guys to subsidize that kind of stuff.

It's always good to know what's possible.

I've been following Australian outback trailers and their use of Lithium batteries. It's easy to understand their benefits and their disadvantages. If price were equal many would be jumping to purchase.

Information is always good.

We'll see. So far, so good. Pricey, but some great benefits when you have limited space and load carrying capacity.

I bet the peak charge and withdrawl rates are a lot lower, too. A traction battery isn't ideal for capacity if it's designed correctly.
