    Cars and other light vehicles wouldn't need such a system.

    I don't agree, these could be designed as a standardized quick change form factor to be used in conjunction with a lithium battery.

    Heavy vehicles could use air/aluminium cells with an appropriate recycling facility (cough cough Tiwai Point)
    They are primary cells so non-rechargable.

    Re: Smashed Samsung phone.

    I googled your issue "how to unlock samsung phone when screen is broken"
    There are various answers and some seem a bit dodgy.
    I haven't gone to these myself for obvious reasons.

    Good luck

  22. Re: The Aliens are monitoring human technology. Really?

    Yes and their climate change denialism also has an ulterior motive.

    It all makes sense now!

    Re: Prime Time.....

    Are you seriously suggesting that a language is not allowed to borrow words from other languages?
