If you are one of those Christians that believe in Jesus, his return to earth, the rapture, and all that nonsense, don’t bother to read on! Unlike the idiots that think the end of the world is just around the corner. I believe we must take care, not to irreparably damage our biosphere so that we leave our children a planet fit to live on.
This post is not about religious idiot bashing its about a potential technology that can help reduce worldwide emissions from cars.
Electric cars have been around for almost a decade, i myself own several cars. One is an a 5 seater electric Renault kangoo that i use to and from work. What sucks about it is that it will only travel 60-80 km on one charge. and it takes 4 hours to re-charge the batteries.
Its plain to see why todays electric cars are not suitable for everyone. On the other hand the electric car is dirt cheap to operate and own. Compared to my other cars i would estimate that the cost of operating the electric car is 2-3% of the cost of operating a normal car over the same distance.
Apart from the major negative of battery power and charging cycles and the major positive of ultra low operating costs! The electric car is just like normal car, comparable acceleration, comparable comfort, comparable speed, its bit more quiet though…. anyway in most respects it just like a normal car.
If battery power and charging cycles where more suited to the power requirements of a normal car i would immediately trade in all my gas guzzelers for electric vehicles.
Now a company has a solution for this problem! Their products address a diverse range of needs in energy, pharmaceutical, and other industries but what made me place some money in their stock is their battery technology.
Altairnano as the company is called, produce among other things, fast charge, high power density, long life battery technology.
Imagine a car battery that re-charges in 15 minutes, powers the car over 300 -350 km, with a battery life span 4 times longer than the average lifetime of a car. This is what their technology delivers. Or how about charging your mobile once a week? or a laptop that can run on batteries for several days and re charge in 10 minutes?
Not only do they have propietory battery designs but they can also integrate their tech in existing litium ion batteries, greatly improving performance.
On top of this the cost are only around 1,50 – 2 dollar per KW, this is comparable to existing battery costs, the only difference is that this battery is a hell of a lot more practical in use, it delivers the same performance and practicality you would get from a petrol engine but with none of the environmental damage caused by burning fosil fuel.
I have since long had a solar panel next to my parking space and i will trade inn my kangoo with a berlitz since they have usable Battery packs with altair nano technology. I believe this stock will make me a nice profit over the next couple of years. I put 150K $ into the company, i realise most people cant affort to gamble this sort of money on stocks but you dont need to invest a lot.
If you have some extra cash that you can afford to gamble with, i recommend this stock! not only am i convinced it will give you a good return, you will also be supporting research and technology that can greatly reduce car derived pollution.
