Portable Car Battery Jumper

Yesterday the battery on my vehicle died. I had to call my daughter to drive over so I could jump start my vehicle. After I got my vehicle started, she reminded me that I had been looking at portable jump starters. If I had one, it would have been [more]

Re: Cooking without gas

I wonder if the microwave can get water hot enough for coffee?

The answer is yes it can. A microwave can get water to its boiling point. Once it is at its boiling point, the temperature will not go up on the water.

Re: Let’s Change the Subject

I have yet to see a solar installation where the panels cover every square foot of the sun-facing portion of a roof (installed from top edge to bottom edge and from left to right edge). Since not every square foot of roof is covered, the parts [more]

Re: Let’s Change the Subject

Usually the part of the roof where the solar panels are placed get the most weathering and sun deterioration. The solar panels extend the life of that part of the roof. Thus total roof replacement is put off for years. That is the experience from [more]

Re: Let’s Change the Subject

Solar panels also reduce the heat load on the roof and prolong the life of roofing materials.

That does not help much if other parts of the roof is worn out. Usually people replace all the roof materials at the same time.

No leaking roofs with solar done properly.

The poster made a good point in that each roof penetration has the potential for leaking. Exhaust pipes can leak. Roof skylights can leak. Ridge vents can leak. I had pipe boot that started [more]

I happen to watch two Godzilla movies from the 1970s over the weekend. The Japanese weren't too big on character development either.

Re: Fiat, VW, and Tesla

$50 billion!!! The biggest legacy automaker seems to be burning a lot of cash (a lot more than Tesla has to date) to ramp up EV production at a slower rate than Tesla.

What was Tesla's production rate in 2016?
