Battery backup - EGO Nexus

Many EV owners have converted lawn equipment from gasoline to electric. I've seen several reviews by EV YouTubers that have sold their gas appliances and converted to electric, most with good opinions of the equipment. One such maker, EGO, now sells a battery backup (inverter) unit that uses the same battery packs as their yard equipment. This is very versatile as you can take advantage of your energy storage for multiple purposes. Here's a review of their unit I found online:

EV charging in China

A friend of mine, Tom Croak, is visiting China and sent me this:

"We were in Tianjin China visiting a temple and found where the employees park their electric bicycles and electric scooters. We saw these electric scooters all over town, some quite old. I wouldn’t be surprised if they had lead acid batteries.

The weird looking things on some of the handle bars are similar to coats that protect the rider’s hands and chest area from the cold."

Tom also sent a photo of a Neo in China. These are sold as the British MG brand, and are getting good reviews from UK owners. The USA needs to stay at the top of its game!
