"Come to think of it, that size battery pack weighs more than a Metro!"

Yeah, 24 batteries would TAKE a pickup truck to hold them. Weight and Space both... No rapid-change videos there!

They didn't teach us anything like that at the GM tech schools back in the '80s. I bet there are classes now for the hybrids and the Volt.

What I need to do is get a better grip on range per battery. I start missing on a cylinder or two when I try to understand range as a function of series vs. parallel connections...and how voltage figures in...

still Intrigued...
