2021-02-13 Article Talks Trash Re: EVs and Lithium Batteries

My replies to article cited by an “electrical engineer with 34 yrs experience”. https://returntonow.net/2021/02/09/the-spiraling-environmental-costs-of-lithium-batteries-could-rival-fossil-fuel/ << Ned Goldston Thanks for the link to the article.

2020-12-18 Alternator Charges Battery

This setup just charges the battery as long as the resistor is connected to the field coil. There is no regulation of the charge and it can overcharge the battery. To properly regulate the charging, the alternator should have a regulator instead of the resistor. The regulator will shut off the charging when the battery
