NEW LIFETIME REBUILDABLE BATTERY TAKES WORRY OUT OF BUYING ELECTRIC VEHICLES

August 1 2014.

Electric vehicle (EV) technology developer NTS Works has created a small and powerful battery that can be rebuilt and upgraded for half the cost of a new replacement battery. The battery represents a large step toward making EVs of all sizes affordable and more environmentally sustainable.


When the battery of an EV accounts for half the total vehicle cost, buyers worry about the battery wearing out and being too expensive to replace. With the NTS Works Lifetime Rebuildable Battery technology, the battery can be easily rebuilt and upgraded with standard sized lithium-ion cells.

The United States Patent Office has granted NTS Works Inc a patent on the technology; additional patents are pending.

THE TT VISITS THE WHEATSHEAF

July 31 2014.

A TT Riders’ Association fund raising event grew from a pub quiz to full blown TT paddock in a car park. Malc Wheeler reports:


On hearing that I had been made president of the TTRA, my local, the Wheatsheaf in Louth, Lincolnshire, offered to raise some funds for the TT Riders’ Association. Lyn Procter, the landlady, and Jim Blanchard, her partner are in to racing, so there I was thinking a nice pub quiz with a TT theme; Jim had bigger ideas.

After months of planning the day arrived and what a day it turned out to be. With a mini TT paddock, some very exotic machinery, TT stars Roger Marshall, Alex George, Steve Plater, Jim Curry and the TT’s fastest newcomer, Pete Hickman, plus radio and TV presenter Andy Kershaw in attendance, what is normally a quite pub car park was buzzing all day long.

Journalist and TV presenter Tony Carter [stop]did the honours with the interviews and also showed he is a talented auctioneer.

In total the event raised over £5,700 and the money is still coming in.
