See Your Gas Savings Sooner With New Batteries


EnerDel, a car battery company, predicts that advances in lithium ion batteries in development now will significantly cut the cost of hybrid cars, so folks who wait to buy their hybrid could see their gas savings in as few as two years after purchase. According to buy viagra without rx Wall Street Journal, should you sell your gass-guzzler and run out and buy a Prius today, it’d take about 7 years before you notice a savings on gas money since the car is pretty pricey. But should the planned advances for lithium ion batteries see daylight, that amount of time will be cut down to less than two years.

EnerDel plans to start a manufacturing line capable of cheap tramadol without a prescription fedex making 300,000 lithium ion batteries a year for hybrid electric cars, starting in 2010. They like lithium ion because compared to nickel-based batteries, lithium is smaller, lighter, and holds twice the energy density…and is far cheaper.

Getting more life for the buy cialis from canada charge is a big deal in lithium ion battery research. While lithium ion batteries have a habit of losing their charge capacity after awhile, EnerDel says their batteries keep their charge capacity for up to 300,000 cycles, or 10 years of life. That's a long time for a battery's charge capacity. EnerDel has a deal to supply car batteries to Think Global for their all-electric towncar, plus two more deals in the works. They are making another prediction that by 2011, lithium ion batteries will be utilized by 75 different car models, showing that car manufacturers are getting serious about ditching all-gas vehicles in the very near future.

I think you have this a little mixed up. Shouldn't it be, "folks who wait to buy their hybrid"? After all, the current hybrids do not have the new battery technology you are talking about and they won't until at least 2010.

There's little doubt that gas prices, new battery technologies, etc, will lead to the prominence of all-electric cars. What I question is how much this really will benefit the environment.

Even electric cars get their power from fossil fuel plants (usually). The real "green" part is no prescription cheap viagra that they are so energy-efficient, because they have to be. Once the battery technology advances, you'll see the electric sports cars and trucks burning up power as usual. Our gas dependency will be gone, but that's all.

Prius pay back in 5 years at $3.25 gal:
written by Vince Caruso, June 08, 2008
CU did a study of Prius payback and then restudied it to get it right, and found the Prius payback is 5 years at about $3.25/gal! This is not to mention the very very low emissions benefit with this PZEV.

Detroit why you flat footed again?
What's with the year 2010
written by JP, June 08, 2008
I've been a fan of the site for a long time... and it seems to me that any advancement in fuel savings or car tech is post dated until 2010. Seems odd to me. Anybody else see this trend?

JP, you're not the only one who's noticed it. It does seem to be something of a running gag at this point.
7 year payback? WSJ come on...
written by Green Dev Guy, June 08, 2008
Ok, the 7 year Prius payback comment really annoyed me. This is FUD presented by those who refuse to buy into the hybrid movement (not surprisingly it came from wsj). Yes, if you're seriously upside-down on your current car you'll be in for a rough trade-in, but for many people (especially those driving suvs), the trade-in shock wont be any worse than hitting the cheap levitra india pump for several more years. Face it, gas prices are not going to get better, neither are the resale value of viagra for sale london gas guzzling cars and suvs.

As for the payback on the Prius, the resale value is *extremely* high, and, at least here on the east coast, Toyota is aggressively trying to buy back cars for their certified pre-owned program. Based on the offers we've had on our Prius it's possible to walk away cleanly from your new Prius only a year and a half after purchase. Few if any cars come any where near this.

The wsj article (and similar articles) are disappointing. It's unfortunate, but the average person doesn't seem able or willing to how to buy cialis in canada think for themselves, and this type of information is taken as fact. I still know idiots driving suvs crying to me about gas prices, wtf this is it's great! cialis woman not a new development. Even worse some have sited the cost of the Prius, when further discussion unveiled their gas expense per-month is *more* than a month payment on good choice viagra next day a new Prius.

Anyway money aside I know hybrids aren't a perfectly green solution (though a step the right direction imo). My wife works and drives the Prius, I'm self-employed and drive around 500 miles a year, so we're doing good I think.

Debate about the $ payback issue aside, if you buy a Prius today you'll make an immediate impact on both your carbon footprint and the amount of other hydrocarbons, NO2, SO2, etc. that you emit every mile.

Does anyone know much about how much value these batteries have at the end of their cycle life. If most of the battery can be reconditioned to create new batteries there should be a good refund program in place to offset the initial purchase of the batteries.
Why do they use the Global Average?
written by EV, June 09, 2008
Why is it studies like this always use the Global Average? The Global Average includes 3rd world countries that are starving and have various other problems. Do they really think that comparing 1st and 3rd world countries is a valid comparison? Let me know when they start comparing the U.S. to other 1st world countries such as those in Europe, Russia and Japan.

I'm pretty sure you can't just "Recondition" batteries and expect them to be anywhere as good as new.

You'll eventually have to replace the battery packs, no matter what the cialis next day delivery technology being used. The pack also degrades with driving conditions and temperatures.

Overall I do feel they are better than all gas vehicles.

I really wish the gov. would get off it’s @ss and cheap viagra without prescription help out here. We can change over car plants to make tanks in less than 6 months(oh wait that was a long time ago) but we can’t figure out how to get off of oil in 30 years?

One last thing… most good ideas are getting bought up by the big oil companies….and I wonder why?
