    Even if under cover, paint will likely bubble due to moisture trying to evaporate from the concrete.

    If something is to remain a curiosity in the Marc world, who will pay to find this better battery you talk about, before we are allowed to develop a vehicle to use this magical Marc battery in ? Have you been living under a rock, do you think battery technology is not currently under development. Battery technology is moving at a rapid rate, energy density of Lithium-ion batteries has gone from 55 Wh/l in 2008 to over 450 Wh/l in 2020, with latest iteration in Tesla Model 3 leading the way...

    That response is from a Chinese factory, not a local supplier, I would just ask for the money back definitely not a replacement one.

    Only one way to find out, ask them for the documentation that shows it's SAA approved, if it is, they WILL have this in documented proof. If they can't provide this, tell them your going to send the defective one to the authorities, with the sellers details, pretty sure it will get a quick response from them after that.

    Why do you think it's unreasonable to consider an electric car as an alternative ? It's been proven hundreds of thousands of times by owners that they are a plausible alternative. If they were not plausible, they wouldn't sell them. If it's not for you doesn't mean it's not a viable option for others, just because others like the idea of having an electric car doesn't make it right or wrong, that's not your place to make that decision for them. If you think it's all a scam and wrong,...

    I was watching a video on this exact thing, the problem comes when you "load" the generator / magic box it puts more load on the system that it can generate, so it's pointless having it because you are just going to run out of reserve power in the end. I would have thought in this day of technological advances, they could have produced some sort of generator that doesn't have much drag on the system, sort of like a passive motor that simply sits in parallel with the main motor and has some...

    This doesn't work, it's been proven, the energy required to turn the generator is more than the generator can give back. This is why no manufacturer of electric vehicles has implemented this type of system. If there was a manufacturer that could make this work, they would be a on a goldmine overnight.

    I wouldn't bother doing anything with this except put it in the e-waste bin. These cheap non complied plug packs are dangerous, not only for fire risk, but electrocution. A few years ago there was a lady in Sydney who was electrocuted by a cheap non complied USB charger when is shorted the 240 to the 5V side,. She was wearing headphones while charging and took the shock through her ears, left behind two kids. I only buy name brand stuff, or for LED drivers, ones that can be verified by...

    The product identifies with plastic shower panels which are generally PVC. Liquid Nail products are also generally used on PVC and are much cheaper, why I wonder about the Sika product. Personally I have never liked liquid nails much and would like to find the best product for adhering PVC to plywood. I am considering polyurethanes like 11FC.

    I am wondering if Sika Showerbond is just a dressed up construction adhesive by another name. Sounds like liquid nails to me. Anyone with experience with the product?
