    There's a new & exciting announcement of an electric sport bike (motorcycle) from Canada (eh?)
    Damon (link).
    It has on the fly adjustable ergonomics for rider comfort.
    It's price point is between Harley's Live Wire & Zero's SR/F (new platform).
    Hopefully it actually comes to market.

    Blackberry is alive & (hopefully) well heading up the electronics.
    It has a bunch of cameras & sensors to allow the brains of the bike determine if that cage (inclosed/cabin-ed vehicle, i.e. car, truck, etc.) is about to turn in front you (ruining your day).

    I think rider assistance is good on one hand (makes experienced riders safer) but bad if beginning riders rely too much on technology & never developed their own skills.

    What thinks you???

    Graphene battery’s hold a promising future for battery powered devices.
    Greater energy density, faster recharge times, & more charge cycles are some of the advantages over present day battery technologies.
    The down side is/will be cost but that will decrease as this technology ramps up.

    Didn't I hear something about 'salt' batteries on the verge of being viable? One of their biggest advantages was the fast charge times. Probably posted by Space Racer. And the word 'salt' may have been used in the generic sense, meaning, may not have been your ordinary table salt.
    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    Mighta been glass batteries...
    Vacuum Technology:
    CRUD = Contamination Resulting in Undesirable Deposits.
    CRAPP = Contamination Resulting in Additional Partial Pressure.

    Change your vacuum pump oil now.

    I did a quick google search & found this (link)

    Even if they don’t have sufficient energy density to make it into mobile devices (including EV's) perhaps they will make suitable energy storage for wind & solar?

    Meanwhile Tesla is likely to introduce a new (to them) Prismatic battery for the Chinese marketed Standard Range Model 3.

    Interesting article. So, for whatever reason, the current [get it? get it? LOL] salt batteries are big.

    Current (yes I got it) battery’s are Goodenough (link), but improvements are needed & this technology sounds promising.

    How about some upcoming cordless/battery powered tool?
    Here’s some from Milwaukee including a combo recovery/evac pump (@ the 10:20 mark)

    That is an interesting one.
