Who know what those batteries will cost when alternative energy products  go
through the roof.

Or wait? Maybe the fad will be over!

Grid power is much cheaper than PV and peddling would be far cheaper than a
set of those rechargable batteries you would be replacing.

Lots of fun though.

electric scooter and a small pv set up as I drive less than five miles a
day and pay nothing for gas at all.

High mileage vehicles are not a fad, and will be the reality if you wish
to drive anything other than a bicycle.

You totally miss the point. They are not free, no matter how far you stick
your head up your ass.

The point is once it's paid for, other than regular maintenance, yes it
is free. No gas, no road tax, batteries charged by existing PV. BTW
battery packs are under $00.00, the equivalent of two tanks of gas in
Canada.
