Good read/press. Karmic is turning some heads.
What Karmic says about batteries really hits home with me. I'm locked in to a high priced replacement for a heavy, back-end battery. Better, for me, to buy the S.
I've built a bike but I'm using hobby LiPos at the moment. You put them in their little fireproof jackets and charge them outside. Fine with me, because I have a small solar system and 12v batteries, but not for the consumer market. Trying to build a pack is daunting. Bad cells have cost Pedego a lot of money. I don't know how you match older cells, when some go bad, stuff like that. I hope maybe Karmic can make a 'smart' charger than optimizes things, like a standard 90% charge, or a storage charge at 50%.
I'm hoping this technology spreads, whether you can slide cells into the frame "at home" or not. The Tesla Home uses reasonably priced cells, so what you need are those cells and the all purpose frame, light enough to mount low and in the middle.
That's a very educational article. Bright people who are good with colors. Tough combo.
