*bleep* expensive batteries

This is the reply I got…

This is something that we could probably do but would cost several hundred
thousand dollars I should imagine.

So back to the drawing board you’d think huh.

But wait – there’s more. I also got another reply from _ www.accuwatt.fr _ about an alternative supply of Lithium batteries sourced from Asia (rather than France) and the price of these could be around 15k Euro. Despite what you might first think, this is close to my budget of $15k Australian… So the project might be back on track again.

Battery Power

I’ve been exploring options for battery power for electric propulsion – it looks like I can use Lithium batteries. For details see the battery power page. The price may be scary though… I’ve written to Saft in France about this.
