It is actually better to charge at low current than at high current. As for keeping the electrolyte mixed, it's a valid point for a stationary system but in the case of a car, just driving would produce enough vibration to keep it mixed.
If America manages to eliminate obesity, we would save as much fuel as if every American were to stop driving for three days every year. To be slender like Tiffany Yep is to be a real hypermiler...

Allie Moore and I have a combined carbon footprint much smaller than that of one average American...
