What's so different about an Edison that makes them such a "good"
battery? ------ He also mentioned getting a speeding ticket in it on the freeway.
Officer commented about it being the oldest car he'd ever cited for doing
Loren and All : Edison (my hero) if asked by Loren --what ? will Toluene
do in a diesel Rabbit ? ---would never never say forget it it is a Octane improver .
He would say get me a Rabbit diesel and a drum of Toluene ---and we WILL find out.
Edison was one addicted FANATICAL experimentor ---and he set out to make the
worlds BEST battery (rechargeable) ----and he did just that. The EDISON
alcaline Nickel Steel battery . After that the Eupians like the SWEEDE Jungman improved
on the Idea. Enter Nickel Cadmium . ----- and the Alcaline was on the way.
What was so great about the Edison ? ---you could take a cell and drop in from Empire State
to the road below ---you could Freeze it boil it ---let it sit discharged for 10 years ore more
you could overcharge it for weeks and let it boil ----NOTHING would destroy the
thing ---except electrolytic current to the case puncturing it. As long as the case was ok and
the plates were there ?--- you got a cell. Short circuit ? ---no problemo.
Try THAT on your AGM ? ---and let me know. And further they can be charged in
reverse ---and still work. Hows about that ? Charlie Brown ? ---- yes + becomes
negatory and so on.-----no problemo just reverse ---it will be OK.
At 50 below in Hansen Land the Edison rules ---how low will they go ? I do not know
but they just LOVE 40 below.
By now some smart one will ask WHAT is the downside ? ok I shall tell.
Efficiency watts in to watts out --and high maintenance. Like a VW Diesel they
need a person with som acumen --accumen ? --well whatever NO dummy need
For a fanatic DIY like Hager ? ---Edison is KING.
My stable ? NiFe and SAFT and Edison. and more. If I do not have a 100 000 dollars of
alkaline batteries at retail price I will kiss your ass. ( line up ).
Next I will tell my favorite NiCad tale --no matter how stupid I looked.
PS: speeding ticket ? -----must have been one hell of a hill ---and all downhill.
