Better Batteries for Electric Vehicles

Hybrid vehicles are now either being developed or already in the lineup of several car manufacturers. This revolution is brought to American shores by Japanese car manufacturers like Toyota and Honda. The Toyota Prius has become a favorite for the American buyers who are concerned with the conservation of the environment as well as the ever increasing prices of gasoline. The success of Japanese car manufacturers has challenged different car manufacturers to develop their own hybrid-electric vehicles - or in the case of Volvo, a vehicle that runs on an alternative fuel. Different designs and concepts have surfaced in the race to produce energy efficient vehicles. These include plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles, and electric vehicles. The past two years has seen the development of vehicles that not only depends on its engine for power but also on electric motors. What an electric motor needs do is to provide power for the car in a long span of time. It should be a good power storage box or a battery. This is where Lithium Technology Corporation steps in. The company provides rechargeable batteries for any conceivable use. And the company is moving forward to help the automotive industry in providing quality batteries that can be used on electric cars whether to a fully electric vehicle or a hybrid-electric vehicle. The batteries being offered by the company are lithium ion ones which stores the same amount of energy to that of a metal-hydride battery but weigh less.The company has shown what their batteries can do by teaming up with Innosys Engineering to convert a mass produced car with a gasoline engine to an electric car. The team started out with a four-seater Daihatsu Cuore and converted it to be run from the power stored by lithium-ion batteries and a three-phase asynchronous electric motor. The battery used to power the vehicle has a capacity of 250 kWh and can power the car to a range of approximately 180-200 kilometers depending on driving conditions. The car can reach speeds of up to 100 kilometer per hour. The performance of the converted electric car is at par to that of the previously announced Chevrolet Volt from General Motors that will be produced and sold to the public by 2010.The availability of such technology is a great boost to the efforts of car manufacturers to produce cars that will be less dependent on fossil fuels. The only problem being encountered is the cost of production of such batteries and the convenience for the drivers especially the concern about recharging the battery. But with collaborations on the part of Lithium Technology Corporation and the car industry could mean a development of ways to bring down the cost of production of such components. Partnerships between car manufacturers and the global provider of large format rechargeable power solutions could mean that, in the near future, majority of the cars in our roads will be energy efficient and produce less or no emissions at all. The batteries being produced by Lithium Technology Corporation can be recharged by an engine as in the case of hybrid-electric vehicles. They can also be charged via a standard AC electrical socket for plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles. The company has developed a range of high quality batteries like the brake components that can be found at Active Brakes Direct. These batteries are produced with electronic controls or battery management systems that harnesses the battery's full potential. Aside from batteries that can be used by electric cars, the Lithium Technology Corporation also produces batteries for other technological gizmos like laptop computers and the likes.

Best Car Wash and Wax Tips from the Pros

It is a proven fact that the better your car looks the higher the value you will get at resale or trade-in. Proper car care to include washing, waxing, and polishing will not only make your car look its best, but will help retain its value and make it last longer. For the purpose of this article we questioned numerous detailing experts and other similar professionals as to what works best. Here are their best car care recommendations:Start by using a garage or shaded area. The hot sun will make proper car care and cleaning hard, if not impossible and could be detrimental to your car's finish. Next thoroughly wet down the car. This will remove dirt and road debris which will cause scratches if you skip this step and start using a sponge and soap on the car. If it is a hot day, be sure to routinely wet the car so it does not dry suds or cleaning chemicals on it. Next use a car wash solution, don't use general purpose detergents and cleaners that were never meant for car care and car washing. A car wash solution will not dry out your paint or strip and possibly remove protective coatings. A long armed, soft bristled wash brush will greatly reduce the time it takes to thoroughly clean your car. It will also make it easier on your back and muscles. A good quality brush can be cheaply obtained at Walmart for about $10-$15 - buy one, you will be glad you did. When you have finished washing the whole car, use a chamois to dry off your car. A chamois will remove water quickly and not leave lint which terry cloths are prone to do. Routinely washing your car will remove things like bird droppings, bugs and industrial fallout which are all detrimental to your car's paint and finish. If there is road tar or stubborn bugs left after washing you should use a bug and tar remover prior to waxing and polishing.It is a good idea to follow washing with the application of a cleaner/polish. This will remove minor imperfections in the paint caused by the environment and sun damage, remove minor scratches, and provide a good surface for car wax or car polish. Follow the directions on the bottle. Basically you apply cleaner wax as you would wax - in a circular motion and you treat one area or panel at a time. Use modest pressure and then let dry to a whitish haze. Buff with a clean cloth towel and reapply as necessary.Then you need to decide whether to use car wax or a polymer car polish. According to the experts, carnauba car wax has the deepest and wettest looking shine, but it is also the weakest protection for the harsh environment (acid rain, extreme temperature ranges, bird droppings, etc...). Car polish is easier to apply as it requires less effort to apply and remove. It will also last much longer (some have polymers and even Teflon and will last as long as 52 car washes after 1 application). Car polish will still give you that new car look and was the unanimous recommendation from our experts for any outdoor use (car wax was recommended mostly for car shows). Both car polish and car wax are applied in the same way and many come with a cloth or foam applicator. Apply in a small circular motion same as with the cleaner/polish. Car polish will go on easier and come
