    Hi BW,
    Happy to hear your doing OK, and my sock drawer continues to gurgle from being underwater, but this is the only way that I can currently support the tech that I think is an ultimate winner.

    Yeah, I remember all the surprise and astonishment on finding out that the sheeting process hadn't been automated before, but to me and my fabrication experience it was bound to be something that was in primitive stages of development. I still see (in theory) the possible announcements of new and improved processes that will further cut costs of production for higher margin of profit while lowering the end user costs (yes, I realize that in time a cost efficiency peak will be reached).

    Hang in there Bud and keep hanging around, you have friends here whether you are invested or not, that appreciate your opinion to help keep us honest.

    Hi BW,
    Oh no you don't. You can't go back to lurk mode until I've said "How ya doin Bud"? Don't hear from you much any more and just want to make sure you're OK.

    Hi ARGE,
    We can't even get pot holes filled out here. So I don't see this happening except as a pilot project. Notice there is no discussion about the decrease in output from tire wear (rubber on the panels) or the normal oil residue on roads? I think this is another green cool idea without much practical application unless you want to use it in your driveway (to charge a power cube of course).

    Hi JR,
    Nice to see you have something of value to add to the discussion.

    Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Leap tall buildings in a single bound.

    Sound familiar?

    DR,
    Set it next to the toilet flower pot.

    Hi ii,
    "the Redflow battery will be competitive if the company can triple the device's cycle life.

    “In our view, this should be achievable,” according to the analysis"

    Oh yeah, all they have to do is improve cycle life to make it economical 3X. Piece of cake. ;-)

    Hi Amouna,
    I think what I hear from returning military vets fits. "it is what it is".

    Hi JP,
    I understand the opportunity costs of focusing on a small market vs a larger market that would have quicker pay back for the R&D needed to make a system work. I was originally hoping to put a system together in my garage (why I was searching for a battery to begin with).

    All water under the bridge at this point as I found the batteries were unavailable to the common tinkerer. The best I could do was buy some stock for my sock drawer and hope my time would come to tinker in the garage.

    ii and Rick,
    Yep the charge acceptance. I had heard of the discharge curve of course, but I figured by converting to AC the inverter could provide voltage regulation to 110v no sweat. As DI states below running 4 16v batteries should make it doable. The only thing that I saw that would need to be figured out would be starting the engine automatically for a recharge cycle and then shut off again, something I didn't see as being that complicated.

    I am a garage and old farm boy tinkerer and didn't think it would be hard to figure out. After hanging out around here and watching auto and trains for a few years, well, now I know better.

    ii,
    In my innocence, at the beginning of my search for an APU battery setup, I figured a battery setup of 4 batteries converted to AC. With the ac power an off the shelf RV air conditioning unit could be run by the batteries converted to AC or external 110v plug. The PBC fit the bill as when on battery power, when the batteries got too low the engine could kick on to quickly recharge the batteries (high charge acceptance). I was guestimating maybe 3 quick recharges in a 10 hour break. Using off the shelf parts made it a slam dunk. Little did I know.......

    Oh Yeah. An APU set up was the whole reason I was searching for battery solutions when I found this APC years ago. With the anti-idle laws, I spent many uncomfortable nights on the I-15 between Las Vegas and Baker CA. I could let the truck idle and get some good rest while worrying about getting a ticket or slowly roast unable to sleep. Of course the company was split on it as they wanted well rested and safe drivers, yet didn't want to waste the fuel or have drivers that lost points on their CDL ( or have the added cost of a small genset).

    Hiya BK,
    There have been videos shot from an R/C quad copter That's probably the reason for the angle and focus.
