But I can park it for a month, even after driving it hard, and not worry about turning itself into a paperweight. That is simply fucking inexcusable. Either use a power supply that doesn't care if it's discharged, or make it so that it can't get fully discharged. Solarpanel, an emregency capacitor, a goldern anti-brick fuel cell, something, anything. Cuz this is as stupid as a battery operated device with a big high current lamp that comes on to let you know when you've turned the power off. I guess I'll hold out the hope that this is anti-tesla agitprop until further notice. It ain't like I have to worry about it personally...
PS I haven't been able to find out how much this 4 footer costs, but I did find that it weighs 450 kilos... holy crap. The info I had on how much lifter charge is needed to get that thing up in the air may be inaccurate... a 6 or 7 lb bag of fff powder. Other sources say more like 50 lb, with lots of wadding twixt the charge and the shell to keep it from coming apart in the gun. In any case, getting 450 kilos ~2700' up in the air on just a black powder explosion has my undying respect.
