I, too, like the Sadoway Rule, Jim_T. With a few minor exceptions, it has held up amazingly well since I first heard about it in 1998.

Glad you mentioned that, Charles, - That was the very first thing that occurred to me, after reading the "Sadoway Rule," where a battery needs approximately 1 Wh/kg to go one mile.  --  I thought, "OK, a giant battery, in a 2-seater".  Made me think of the earliest wood and coal burning locomotives of the early 1800's.  90% furnace and a tiny little cockpit!  How funny everything starts out; but luckily evolves.

Battery predictions have always been notoriously unreliable. As much as GM would probably like to start taking orders for their 200-mile cars, there's still a lot of test that has to be done.

GM should start hyping a 200-mile battery for its cars. It would stimulate interest that is lacking now. Make a switch program, a Volt now, trade-in, get a 20-0-mile car next.

Thanks CharlesM, real life experience is always better than speculation.

Agreed, William K. I know I've never owned a car that got less than 200 miles of range per tank. And I can't remember owning one that got less than 300 miles.

@Charles: Hmm yes people will not want to pay more when there are alternatives around.

@William: We in the 3rd world experience a totally different scenario. There are loads of traffic at anytime of the day and the cost of fuel too is really high. I think you guys are really liucky

Anandy, I have owned quite a few cars and all of them would get at least 200 miles on a tankful, unless I was caught in a traffic jam a lot of the time. Not always much over 200 miles for some, but on my Caravan it is over 300Miles of open road.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
