  • Axion Power Concentrator 397: Apr. 30, 2015 [View instapost]
    He wasn't crying about discrimination when he got his tax break when he purchased the vehicle.

    And everyone knows EV's don't cause anything at all bad. It's all good. <ES>

    Those bad gov-mint officials changing the rules.

    Oregon to test pay-per-mile idea as replacement for gas tax

    "Some electric and hybrid car owners, however, say the new tax would be unfair to them and would discourage purchasing of green vehicles.

    "This program targets hybrid and electric vehicles, so it's discriminatory," said Patrick Connor, a Beaverton resident who has been driving an electric car since 2007."

    "Anyone else wondering what the BOD are doing?"

    I could only guess based on limited evidence. An inference of limited value would suggest at least two of the remaining players might be of lesser value than a few recent departures. Not a great team to have when you're up against insurmountable challenges. But hey, they've got "Trego the Great Financer" to keep the course.

    Mr, Averill, Your influence was once measurable. Why would you would ask this question now given the thus far accounting of the Axion story? Err sad.

    Again, not an accounting of your life, but of your oversight at Axion. A big fat zero performance score. JMHO.

    Your frustration is to me almost Twilight Zone in it's deliverance. Never look for a favorable audience of persons that experienced the result of your immediate failure when you were a high end contributor to the outcome.

    Dr, Buiel, Thank You for all the clarity you bring to this forum. I would have hated to always wonder what some of the things were that drove what seemed like a pretty darn good story into such an abysmal outcome. Such a shame to have a talented teams efforts turned into a s%$t salad for most of the original stake holders.

    I can surely see why you left and started an enterprise which runs in large part under your own administration. Certainly not less sweat and blood dedicated to the effort but not having the efforts disrespected by others for their own interests has to be SO refreshing after your prior life lesson. Wishing you continued success and thanks again for sharing your expertise along with some Axion historical perspective.

  • EPower Successfully Completes Third-Party Demonstration Trial [View instapost]
    John, Thanks for the update.

    In theory the "ported pocket" design for the Axion PbC batteries lowers the internal resistance and would thus reduce the heat dissipation in the battery pack. You might wish to ask Axion how far they have come on developing this feature to see if it is available along with your other energy storage development efforts. Should be a quick drop in replacement IF they are available.

    One question. Do you know what the temperature was outside and inside of the battery box during the last leg of the trial run?

    I'm surprised the interest is as high as 7 persons having over 100k shares. Although that isn't a high dollar commitment any more.

    Could be mostly people that got in on the warrants as well.

    "Given the present share price and Axion's financial circumstances, this 8-K sounds like a fair deal,..."

    Same management. Same tactics.

    Wonder what they are thinking?

    Yeah, That's about right.

    Mr. Averill, Not to worry. There are plenty more shares coming from the great financial wizard "Trego the Great".

    Mr. Averill, Yeah, I've been trough a few corp. training classes on writing/filing patents and trade secrets. Contributed to a few. All of the corporations had departments w/ legal staff dedicated to this area as they were fairly large entities. As such I know just enough not to dispute your message on the complexity of patent law.

    I think the concern is that Axion is building a energy storage device w/ a lead free anode (so we're told). And there is a Russian patent that covers this that predates Axion's filing. As such it appears your thoughts on this topic somewhat differ from those of Dr. Buiel if I am correct.

    Mr. Averill, I can understand your position as it relates to Mr. Metcalfe. However, I will insist that through his research and, I'll admit coarse queering, he has turned up valid questions/concerns that were never discussed on this board prior to the recent market valuation of the company. And it seems there are some real valid points that some insiders cannot or will not address. The pointed patent question is one, which quite frankly, Dr. Buiel has already answered if I am not mistaken.

    I will reiterate that I consider your achievements as a whole great but the oversight of Axion, yourself along with the other board members and corporate officers, seems dismal at best.

    I think a yes or a no to the pointed question, based on your understanding, is fitting in this case. Or you just can't or will not answer. But this is not an inappropriate question from Edmund.

    Mathieu, I wouldn't call 400 shares traded on a 3 cent stock exactly setting the price. More like white noise. Does make one scratch the ole head though wondering who is at the bid.

    Edmund, Yes a house of cards for sure.

    So I see nothing wromgs with Dr. Buiel's strategy. However.... If all this was clear what did Axion or their predecessor actually acquire from the Russian party they dealt with? It looks like they got nuttin. And if all this patent chronology was clear does anyone think Axion would have been supported by investors years ago? Unless I'm missing something this really smells bad. Really bad.

    Edmund, And if the Russians made an offer to Axion to move their business to Russia to develop the product and commercialize the product per the prior document I posted again recently, irrespective of the terms, well could be this caused a rift when Axion couldn't come to terms both parties could agree to. This could have all been watched by BMW et al and when the program couldn't move forward w/o litigation then they walked. I'll caution this is all just theory but is plausible.

    BTW, Any potential manufacturing partner that looked into commercializing this w/ Axion as introduced by BMW would have been advised of this situation AND if it couldn't be resolved with a positive economic outcome for them they would have walked as well.

    So if this was true when did Axion know how this was all turning out but not disclose it beyond their standard boiler plate disclosure in their SEC filings? Could be why they didn't try to sell very hard and just milked the lame cow?

    Again all Tom Clancy stuff but plausible.

    Anyway, If any of this is directionally correct the whole Axion story isn't worth shoe shine spit to anyone but the Russians or the Chinese.
