    Question about Li-Ion batteries

    Why isnt there a push to get Dell to use NiMh batteries? Or is that too embaressing a question to ask ENER?

      First, that question is approprieate for Cobasys, Not ECD. Second, why do you assume there is not such a push? You have given no reason to assume they are not doing this.

      In any event, it is probably best right now for some other NiMH licensee to approach Dell with a prototype to evaluate. And, that may well be going on. But, such as safe-Li-Ion maker Valance is likely to also be "angling" for Dell's business.

      Dell made a terrible mistake by going with Li-Ion

      Just imagine a automaker selling a million hybrids with Li-Ion, -- a coulple of fires force a recall program to replace all Li-Ion with safe NiMH. The cost of the recall would bankrupt most automakers. No automaker will ever bet the ranch on Li-Ion. This is a major reason why PHEV will never happen. That, plus cost and the fact that carbuyers refuse to buy cars with a cord.
