Since night charging of vehicles is possible with the existing power generators, there only remains the issue of putting a cheap electric car on the road.

Lead acid chemistry batteries can be used in a stationary way to use night power and then charge at a very high rate at any time.

Vanadium flow batteries or sodium sulphur batteries can be used instead of lead when they become more available.



It is good to see so many people interested in electrification. I'm still waiting to see who will come up with innovative after-market products to support electrification, EVs, PHEVs, etc.

Huge opportunities abound e.g. software that adds "plug-in" capabilities to your onboard computer. How about a free-charge locator? Places you can shop that let you charge-up while you're buying products or services.

After-market supercaps, custom wiring, quick charge accessories, charge reminders, and V2home are just a few of the opportunities for innovators and engineers to come up with winning products.

Should be lots of fun.


How about a free-charge locator?
I'll bet there is already an iPhone App for that -- at least in the wings.
