Guess: how many "labour hours" to make a conventional lead acid car battery?
 
Hmm... Bob Lutz seems to know a bit about batteries...

Skip forward to the 4:00 mark for an interesting quiz he has with his audience. "Anybody wanna guess how many labour hours are in a modern automotive 12v battery?"

I was surprised.

That is very interesting but why is he the only one wearing wearing shades?

I don't know, but something about Bob Lutz scares me. Just thought I'd share.

He going to make you "an offer you can't refuse"

MetroMPG 06-23-2008 09:55 PM

Maybe that's it. He has that kind of voice.

Duh, That was how long it took on "How It's Made"
Most of it is automated as he was stressing.
Therefore, automating the Li battery process has to make them less expensive.
FWTW there was a battery company in the midwest that was making some sort of Li batts they claimed were designed for autos. I e-mailed them when I was looking into making my own electrogeo and got an auto response that they were no longer in the battery business.
This was just before GM got into the hybrid business.
HHHHHHHMMMMMMMM
makes you wonder.

"How can you sell a battery for thirty bucks if there is 6 labor hours in it?" Exactly what I was thinking, haha.

Interesting description. My first guess was a 1/2 man hour...kind of close. :D

He doesn't sound/look very healthy. :o

my Group 49 batter was $110 from the dealership, and that was with 10% off with my club discount. Its the proper battery for the benz.. +4 concourse points...

Those look self-tinting. Probably shouldn't face the window.
