We need a commission to establish form factors and connector standards and voltages so that the competitive dumbassery can just stop with batteries.

The developers can play around with chemistries and watthours forever if they want, but there's no need to allow any more patents based on connection practices.

The battery has been invented. Get over it.

The efficiencies of controllers and chargers and motors are close enough to 100% that we can also standardize those form factors now.

It's time to be done with pseudo competitive picket fences that only increase resource use and profiteering.

They all claim to want to help the environment, but then they make it difficult for anyone else to use their advances.

Rah rah. Capitalism.
