    Maya,

    A typical 20ft container weighs about 66,000lbs at max load. The container itself will be about 5,000lbs which leaves about 61,000lbs for the cargo within.

    The weight on the Bill of Lading is the weight of the cargo and its packaging so in this case the 20,700lbs is what was purchased by Axion.

    I have a certain amount of experience in shipping heavy materials in 20ft containers via ship.

    Many times I have imported large volumes of chain for my marine maintenance business. Bulky items such as the chain used for anchoring a ship would be loaded onto standard shipping pallets. 90 foot lengths would be strapped together and then strapped to the pallet. Similarly smaller diameter chain would be loaded into barrels and then placed, usually 4 barrels per pallet, strapped together and then the whole shrink wrapped for stability.

    To save on shipping costs sometimes these items would be consolidated with lighter weight cargoes for other importers. The light/bulky stuff on top and mine at the bottom. Consolidation does add a delay in delivery but can save lots of $$$$$$.

    There is usually lots of chatter leading up to the end of quarter with most negative comments aimed at our CEO.

    Axion has remained solvent for a decade. Very few sales but the product has grown and is now ready for the market to use.

    TG has been on the record promising sales which as of yet apparently have not materialized.

    The product works, no one disputes that. It is not a panacea but it does satisfy the requirements of several niches in a broad spectrum of battery applications.

    TG's job is to nurture Axion and to make it a success. He serves at the pleasure of the board. The board, in theory, represents the interests of the shareholders. Any concerns that shareholders have should be addressed to the board.

    TG has skin in the game as an employee, a shareholder and a holder of options. His interests in my opinion are aligned with the rest of us shareholders. I cannot imagine TG willfully misleading shareholders. If sales were on the horizon but have failed to materialize or have simply been pushed off into the future there is little that he can do about that. Yes of course it would be nice to have a shareholder update letter but in my experience those are few and far in between.

    We will hear what he has to say next week. Some of us will buy or sell based on what we hear. I suspect that most will do nothing.

    Personally, I have the resources to buy more but will not without very good sales announcements. Regardless of the CC I will not sell as I believe in the product.

    Do you suppose that TG was actually saying that there wouldn't be significant sales within 6 months?

    I guess JP is doing something else at the moment.

    Argyll since you are so knowledgeable on this matter perhaps you can furnish us with the numbers you wanted JP to supply. With a creditable link of course.

    Maybe you also have a neat list of Li-ion EV battery manufacturers? Of course it would be even more helpful if you could supply the net profit data for each of the above? That would greatly support your position.

    The minimum bet of course is the daily cost of running this seemingly endless testing.

    JP

    Many thanks for the info.

    Any idea if the vehicle would allow full battery discharge? eg trying to get your wife to hospital during labour and the vehicle says "i'm sorry we cannot go further as the last 10% of power is reserved for system overheads".

    Any idea how far a model S with a full charge could travel at 130 mph?
