Metal-Free 'Rhubarb' Battery Could Store Renewable Grid Energy

m2shariy Re:Home batteries (131 comments)

During WW I chlorine was used as WMD. Bromine is similar. Nobody has buckets of clorine at home, what they have is some hypochlorite salts which, when dissolved, oxidize organics in water and slo-o-owly release minimal amounts of chlorine. The flow batteries discussed here are supposed to use elemental bromine. If it leaks in your house, you have to call hazmat team. I mean, your neighbors will have to call, because you will be either dead or very busy coughing up what is left of your lungs.

m2shariy Re:hey stupid (222 comments)

Back in the 80s my work was related to power generation. So I know that the local power grid had its own communication network, there was no internet in the area at the time. Worked just fine for them.

BMW Debuts First Electric Vehicle Made Primarily of Carbon Fiber

m2shariy 20 min of fun (164 comments)

170 hp is about 130 kW, driving at 50% throttle is 65 kW. 22 kWh translates into 20 minutes of fun then :) Even at 1/4 throttle it is 40 minutes. Can drive 100 miles in 40 minutes?

NTSB Recommends Cell Phone Ban For Drivers

m2shariy Re:this is complete BS (938 comments)

You contradict yourself. If I drive and do not cause any accidents and do not impede traffic, according to your logic it should be irrelevant if I had a couple of drinks before the drive or not.
