Some thoughts regarding the lynch mob-esque response to the Fiskar Karma house fire story. Below is an excerpted transcript of Chip Yates’ recent interview with London-based Transport Evolved (entire interview at the link below) http://www.transportevolved.com/2012/05/transport-evolved-episode-101-two-wheels-better/ Excerpt from (39:50) Transport Evolved (TE) The thing (Fiskar Karma) catches fire and burns his house down, now the good news is
LONG RANGE ELECTRIC FLIGHT…NOW: Consider this: on our electric superbike, we had the best of the best lithium-ion polymer prismatic pouch cells, 108 of them at a retail price tag of $40,000. On one hand, these cutting-edge cells are very impressive – able to sustain 600 amp current draws, producing a fully charged voltage of
PATENT PENDING: 61/618,482 Long Range Electric Airplane and Method of Operating Same (McKenna, Long & Aldridge, LLP) Compared to fossil fuels and the range that we’ve come to expect from our vehicles, battery energy density is always going to fall well short of what is needed to convert consumers en masse to full EV adoption.
