    D McHattie,
    You said it all so well and I agree with you 100% except to say that I was think $25 per share on the 3 to 5 year plan.

    I was speculating with my buddy Victor and said to him that if PbC's make it into 20% of those 25M SS autos and Axion gets (speculating again here) $50 per electrode set per PbC that is 250M in revenue from this alone.

    Retirement will be fun.

    Good job, somebody's got to do it!

    847K Volume, not bad at all

    Incomplete thought. Used as a UPS for short outages up to size of the cube and then generator kicks in after hour or two? Seems to me it would save on generator use.

    JP,
    Where I work we have a UPS and a Generator. Would the Cube work as a replacement for the generator or possibly a replacement for the UPS with the Generator as a long term backup?

    HTL I agree and I hope he has that many.

    Thanks Maya. I've been around since before "Note and more..." was published. I actually bought my first shares over a couple years ago around $1.40 a share. I don't comment much but am an avid follower of axpw, JP, and these concentrators as well as a hoarder of axpw shares. 90% or so of my shares are avg price .55 per share. This is my fast track early retirement plan and I feel very, very good about it.

    To all,
    I can't thanks all of you enough for the information I've learned from these concentrators and their contributors. We will get rich together.

    Can't blame you, I bought 12.7K @ .37 over the last two days. Makes me wonder how much of the company our group owns?

    Futurist,
    I listened to the call a few times. Here is what he said.

    "To support continued sales growth now and in the future, particularly PbC sales growth, we have supplemented our planned capex equipment modernization program. Some of this important work completed in the 3rd quarter includes modernization of the 2nd battery manufacturing line, including welding equipment. It includes a 35% expansion of the battery formation space. This is extremely important for future PbC sales"

    He says "Some of this important work completed in the 3rd quarter includes modernization of the 2nd battery manufacturing line, including welding equipment." It sure sounds to me like they are getting ready for a second PbC battery line but I thought we needed a few more electrode lines before we run out of capacity on the first Pbc battery line.

    Can't wait for the next two weeks to come and go to see where the stock price goes after these announcements.

    Let's speculate. JP, you said that you thought that the new 16V PbC would probably take either 24 or 32 electrodes per unit.

    2400/24= 100 PbC's per shift (80% = 75 PbC's)
    2400/32= 75 PbC's per shift (80% = 60 PbC's)

    Agreed SHB, I thought of that as well. I spent most of my life in a high volume manufacturing facilities, mainly high speed smt assembly lines. The issue I have with that is the stations were all designed to have a 6 second dwell time. Maybe that is why GEN2a is being talked about? It still sounded like a step backwards from the 100+ batteries worth of electrodes per shift last CC and now we lost 40% of our output since then.

    Putting in another order for 5K @.34 and 5K @ .33. It would be nice to add more but if not, oh well, 55K + of shares will have to do for now. If price stay low into next year, I'l keep addin, 100K shares sounds like a nice round number to have.

    Fururist, I caught on to that as well. Here is the calculations as I remember them at the time of the discussion around last CC

    8hrs = 4800 6 second intervals
    12V PBC has 30 electrodes
    JP said to expect line to run at 80% capacity = (4800/30)*.8 = 128
    128 PbC's worth of electrodes per 8 hour shift

    Last CC TG did say electrode output was low 100's worth of PbC's at that time. Not too far off the 128 expected per shift if all is working correctly. Now if 2 stations are running at 11 second dwell time (almost twice as slow as spec'd per station) output is only

    8hrs = 2816 11 sec intervals
    sticking with 30 electrodes
    formula is (2819/30)*.8 = 70 PbC's per shift
    even at 100% capacity, output is only 87 PbC's per shift

    Something is not right. Thought maybe I should call TG about it. I called and left a message like others after the CC but I did not leave my number, just my name, so I didn't get a call back. Maybe I can still get a few minutes of his time.

    Any thoughts team?

    Thanks DRich ... A couple pics didn't open but the rest were cool. That answers that.

    What do you think the anticipated NSC order will be used for?

    Sorry about confusing you but my question was about the PbC batteries at NSC not about the NS 999. I'll try it again.

    Are any PbC batteries that have been shipped to NSC been installed on an engine or are they still just rack testing? The new order(s) will be to do real world testing on a yard slug and more?

    thx
