I kinda like that little car, ugly it's cute.

The guys who make that electric dirtbike claim their battery is clean enough to pitch in a landfill.

From waht I gather, the EPA says they are non hazardous waste.

I think there are some other companies use them too.

I talked to a guy who owns a controller company, he uses lead acid golfcart batteries in his cars, mainly because the dollar for mile costs are much lower , and there are recycling facilities for those in place and working now.

I know that one battery for that little bike costs over 3000.00 dollars, so it won't be cheap to be green. ( I know nothing about the manufacturing process, or how hazardous the manufacturing of the circuit board that keeps the Li ion battery from exploding like the early Li Ion battery in a laptop does...there are always those little issues that no one want's to talk about)

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
