    Lithium Batteries & What They Mean

    Yes. Lithium batteries could hold the key to solving our future fuel problems for transportation. In the current debate on future fuels, the obstacles of providing suitable refuelling infrastructure for hydrogen-powered vehicles is often overlooked. The infrastructure for plug-in- hybrids is already in place and widespread public battery recharging facilities can be provided on demand at relatively low cost. Hence a seamless transfer from gas/diesel-powered vehicles to mainly electric powered hybrid vehicles will be possible following a breakthrough in Lithium battery development.

    YES! Modular batteries for plug-in hybrids is a great idea. Why not be able to choose between a 10, 20 or 30 mile all electric range? Why not be able to add all electric range in increments?

    Batteries are obviously well-suited to a modular approach.

    I could see the day when we could have energy pick-ups embedded in the road beds to keep these batteries charged and be charged monthy for the energy consumed.

    I believe that these batteries are a better, safer thing for the environment and for pocketbooks also. You could put them in a pocket bike or even hot pockets. If you put one in your pocket, it might get in your locket.

    "Beyond Tomorrow" showed a company in Los Angeles making autos usibg lithium battery packs to power hybrid motor to speeds of 90 mph. Also showed electric motocycle that could keep up with gasoline motorcycle. Does anyone have information on that company? Scienc channel website not responding.

    I don't know exactly what the Science Channel may have shown, however, there are several electric dragsters that hold there own against the ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) ones. There are also 2 companies that have street legal pure EV's that out class any production ICE vehicles. One is AC Propulsion's t-zero that can travel 200 miles on a charge of it's Li-ion batteries. It also can accelerate from 0-60 in under 4 seconds. Wrightspeed's X1 pure EV has similiar performance. See:

    I saw the Beyond Tomorrow piece too, and I believe it was hybridtechnologies that makes it.

    I would like to build an electric car, but I can't seem to find anyone who sells the kind of battery packs that hybrid technologies uses on their Crossfire electric car. They use a DC motor, while AC propulsion (hehe) uses AC. Anyone know where to buy the lithium ion battery packs like they showed in the Beyond Tomorrow piece? How much do they cost?

    Here is another electric car using lithium ion batteries that goes 230 mph! This was also featured on Beyond Tomorrow".

    Do not you think that plug in batteries will not solve our environmental problem as long as we are getting electricity from coal power stations?
