  • Wal-Mart Is Plug Power's Greatest Salesperson [View article]
    abigsox said, "temperest, what lies? Point one out right here and right now."

    You lied about FCs having cold weather issues. You lied claiming no FC cars were available for sale.

    "And please go ahead and use the ignore feature. Investing while hearing only one side of an argument and never testing your own convictions is a fantastic strategy. "

    Is there an ignore feature here? Where is it? I enjoy hearing other viewpoints, but there is a major difference between an alternate viewpoint and a blatant lie which I don't care for.

    Could you elaborate on what this evidence is?

    So is your beloved Tesla. Tesla is bleeding cash and it's getting worse each quarter. At least Plug is improving each quarter and approaching profitability.

    Still doesn't excuse you posting multiple lies on the forums.

    There are other advantages for Gendrives. One is that the power output is high even when the fuel is low. With a battery, the output falls as the battery approaches the end of its charge. That means the forklift will start to slow down as the battery gets depleted costing productivity. An FC will keep going at full output until it's out of juice.

    FCs also withstand going quickly from a warm to very cold environment. This happens repeatedly with these forklifts working in freezer warehouses. Batteries degrade even quicker under these conditions. Batteries are just very delicate - you don't want to let them get too low of a charge, you don't want to charge them too quickly, etc. None of this matters with FC.

  • Facts Are Facts: Is Plug Power Out Of Power? [View article]
    Teslas are not for sale in Russia. Does that mean teslas aren't for sale? Just because a Mirai is not yet for sale in the US does not mean they are not for sale period.

    You are qualifying your claim by adding "in the US" after the fact. That is what you call deceptive commentary.

    Abigsox said, "There's a reason why you can't "buy" fuel cell cars right now, but only "lease" them."

    Do you bother doing any actual research or is this another deliberate lie? FC cars can be purchased today and not just leased.

    Abigsox said, "Have I made any erroneous or false statements? "

    Yes you have. You claimed fuel cells have unusual issues in cold weather. That is a lie as they've been shown to work well in subzero temperatures. Your beloved battery cars, however suffer substantially in cold weather.

    Where is your retraction?

    Do not put words into my mouth Abigsoxfan. I made a comment refuting your deceptive claim that fuel cells had cold weather issues. Batteries have far more substantial performance degradation in cold. FCs are far superior in cold weather.

    Extremely hypocritical to make that claim.

    As for the UNDER 1% market share BEVs have, keep in mind that BEVS have been around for over 100 years. FCEVs have been available for sale only a year or so. With a 100 year head start don't you think that's a bit pathetic to have under 1% market share? And that does not look to be changing.

    There are no "cold weather issues" for fuel cells. That's why the last contract for plug was for forklifts working in a refrigerated environment... because batteries frankly suck when used in cold. No wonder battery cars have under 1% market share.

  • Tesla Motors talks range and self-driving features [View news story]
    "Why he wants to do this is quite a mystery."

    I have a couple theories. One is that he did this to get ideas from the public on how to actually address range anxiety. By tweeting this before actually saying what it was, he caused thousands of people to speculate and talk about it while giving him ideas.

    The other is that he tweeted during options expiration week to affect the stock price. Tesla share price movement is always strange during OE.

  • Android Taxonomies [View article]
    In terms of users, some people like choice on the hardware side. They want to be able to use an SD card or swap out a battery instead of having to plug in their phone to recharge. They may want a waterproof phone or fingerprint reader (before iphone had it) and so on.

  • Tesla Motors: Recent Press Reports From China Confirm Over-Production Of Model S And Indicate Larger Issues [View article]
    "I wonder what road blocks Tesla, current and prospective owners might be experiencing in China."

    They don't like the car. As simple as that. A model S has no practical value so those who buy it do it for image, marketing, etc. And that, in turn, can vary greatly from region to region. For example, Buicks do very well in China.. go figure.

    But outside of silicon valley and high subsidy places like Norway, there isn't much desire for a Tesla either. So China isn't unusual in that regard. It's really the comments by Musk that there was overwhelming demand there that raised expectations and now makes it seem strangely low. But it's not strange... it's pretty much the norm for most of the world.

  • A Comprehensive Look At Tesla's Home Batteries [View article]
    " it is far better than a gasoline or diesel generator since there is absolutely no maintenance necessary"

    Don't you have to clean the solar panels? I used to live in one of the sunniest cities in California where it doesn't rain for months and I remember my car would get coated with dust in a matter of days. I imagine it would be the same for solar panels.

    Of course water is scarce anywhere there is a lot of sunlight. So you introduce another problem.
