    jcrjg, I would not draw the conclusion that Axion is not in communication with NS.

    DDG needs to use that odd wording because of the trouble Axion made for themselves with NS previously by divulging information about the NS999 before NS was ready to release the information.

    Axion has been instructed in no uncertain terms to make absolutely no mention of their work with NS that NS has not already stated publicly.

    That was supposed to be us.

    But f 'em.

    Auto is a 0-margin business for suppliers and that should not be 'where we park our car'.

    I'm still here, encouraged by DDG's letter and our prospects for frequency regulation, rail and trucks.

    I would have loved to have hit a grand-slam on the first pitch but this game is not over yet and we are still at bat.

    Nothing is over until WE decide it is.

    Term limits would not avail you, PY. It would only change who occupies the seat - it would not change who the seat is occupied FOR.

    I'm afraid that, in my opinion, democracy has been subverted.

    No program, policy or legislation will be created, revoked or altered unless it benefits some wealthy constituency.

    So until campaign finance rules change to reduce the influence of big money, discussion of all other issues is a wasteful distraction.

    Sure, we'd like to see it but it still won't be as meaningful to potential customers and seeing the actual results on specific client routes.

    Could be wrong, but my understanding was that these yard slugs spend a significant proportion of day idle, waiting for the next group of cars that need to be pushed around.

    So I would expect the standard operating procedure to be to return to a charging station and top of the charge between bouts of activity.

    The batteries would then always been in that PSOC sweet spot for the PbC.

    Or can someone correct me?

    Are we assuming that a 'shift' or 'trick' is 8 hours long?

    This would seem to indicate that although it died after 3 or 4 hours on the first day it performed work the next day for 16 hours. Which is kinda awesome.

    And the researchers said they'll have a product on the market in 2 years.

    Why does every single battery researcher believe that 2 years is always the amount of time to bring a product to market?

    Where would they even get that idea? Is it from reading other articles about other battery 'breakthroughs' and how long those researchers said it would take to have their product on the market?

    It is amazing that it is so consistent and so consistently wrong.

    Pretty cool, iindy. It boggles my mind how you find this stuff. But I'm glad that you do.

    Good idea, WDD.

    But in the meantime: DNFTT!

    The only option is DNFTT (Do Not Feed The Troll).

    Starve the beast.

    It requires self-control but it's the only answer.

    Any chance a 48 VDC PbC could be an after-market drop-in replacement for the 'lead-carbon' battery Hyundai/Kia are using?

    I think many of us Axionistas, myself included, are a little like Homer in this one.

    "I could flash-fry a buffalo in 40 seconds" says Moe.

    "40 seconds?" laments Homer, "But I want it now!"

    Thank you, John. By no means do I think you owed us these explanations but I very much appreciate it.
