Went to the EV meeting in Ottawa yesterday. Received 4 more used floodies - now have enough for 3 packs: one in the car, one at Ivan's, one at my place. Holy hot swap, Batman!

Also someone offered to lend me a LOT of aviation surplus NICADs like the ones Bigmouse is using in his RX7. Haven't done the math on the energy capacity or configuration or weight, but it's an interesting idea.

Yeah - no shortage of things to do with a bunch of batteries... Just time!
