Here's the answer to all those pesky way-too-heavy battery packs that plague the current throng of electric cars… replace them with AA's. The Panasonic OxyRide (sounds like an amusement park attraction for kids with acne) runs on their new Digital Xtreme Power (DXP) disposable camera batteries. Of course you'd have to change the batteries every three-quarters of a mile, and that's if you weighed only 110 pounds (hence the woman driving it here). I thought the battery life in my digital camera was bad. I guess it's the thought that counts. Thanks to Roy for the tip.
