The driver could then pre-book a fully charged battery en route,

 I reckon it'd work

It is working in China and somewhere else. It's a scooter with lift out battery and the charging stations take the whole battery and you lift out a charged one.

Trouble is when it comes to real power they become too heavy to lift them out.

maybe this could be overcome by design....it's still early days.

Oh yes, once the DiLithium cells are working you'll buy a bike fuelled for life.

I'll probably use the Teleporter for general commuting.... :001:

Can you imagine the impact on global politics if we all had the capacity to produce our own sustainable energy for personal use?  :156:

This interesting blog about electric bikes, and the new electric Harley in particular, coincided with me taking a couple of photos of electric bikes in Auckland - a two seater electric 'bicycle' with solar panel to top up the charge, the other is a different take on a small electric bike/scooter which instead of imitating a conventional motorcycle, is just a frame and an electric motor..... see them here:

First test of the new Harley Davidson Livewire - who would have thought Harley would be the first major manufacturer to sell an electric bike? 

What a great looking bike - unfortunately, the price is a bit rich - 28,995....
