Lots of issues with this including frying an electrical worker when he thinks the lines are cold. With 18650's hovering around $5 each it's no wonder companies are strategically positioning themselves into the E-waste stream for cells. IE I`m not finding them laying around a junk yard. I wouldn't be surprised if Elon's powerwalls are not an answer to repurpose this E-waste lithium stream in house. A big related topic is everyone clamoring to position themselves into the E-scooter rental market. Most of these guys look like the big win fall will be the angel investor pay day. Seems like any of these checks would have been better spent in the venture capital world handing it over to Chon and demanding coated screws. Considering the loser companies in the scooter world are probably not going to break even and are unable to introduce a proprietary scooter for Gen2 beyond Lime and Bird. Without a proprietary scooter to solve the issues of Gen1 the company falls flat and you can kiss that angel investment good bye. What do you plan to collect in the bankruptcy proceedings? possibly a few busted scooters? Not much will be left to attempt a recoup on anything. Even Gen2 is left attempting to establish profitability beyond investment capital in this rental scooter model. Interesting to see how these venture capitalists lined up to inject money here in an already flooded market like it was the cool thing to do and now set up to lose. Perhaps Chon is not seeking a big venture capital check to launch a coated screw to differentiate this product in the market and chooses to take this low and slow in development based on previous sales income without losing a piece of the pie.
