    If it works in the long run, it's got to be better than than the waste of creating and disposing of man made chemicals.

    For sure.
    Just funny that it could be made from such a product!

    What I like to see about the technology is that it charges up in a matter of seconds .. like a capacitor.

    But you're right on re the environment .. all those lithium batteries being made today(and NiCd and NiMH in years gone by) are a much greater hazard for the future than the furphy that is global warming!

    FWIW, we are involved in fire services, and have family members involved in insurance. Both these industries don't think there is any furphy involved.
    Discussion for elsewhere maybe.
