$K4.189195@newsfe15.ams2:


Saw a story on it yesterday on the news and they were saying the same
thing.  It's got to be fixed mounted and won't be replacing engines or
laptop batteries, but according to the company it can run on natural gas
or similar gasses (propane etc) saying that the electricity cost is
around 11 cents a kwh, which is pretty good.  I think that is what folk
pay around here, but if it ran off propane I'd get one (assuming it would
last) for my off grid.

The dude was saying those flat plates are stackable, so I guess they are
designed to where you can add more plates or cells to meet your energy
needs.. so they'll be able to offer different sizes very easily (from a
manufacturing point of view).  THis is all what they say.. not what any
independant tester has said though.

We'll see.  I'm curious how long I can run my house on a 5 gal can of
propane using one of those things.  I'd be a nice change from the ol
honda generator that gets turned on when the solar/hydro driven batteries
are out of juice

While we're at it, don't buy any Canadian Tar Sands oil either. The
stuff is an environmental disaster.

Untill you come up and actually LIVE here, we don't need you FlatLanders
trying to tell US how to live... How about if WE Alaskans come to where
you live, and start telling YOU have to live.....  would that be OK with
you, Mikey....

Just be glad you don't have California on your Southern border.
