      I wonder how much energy it will take to make them (even with eventual economy
      of scale), to produce and transport the sugar to charge them, and to dispose of
      them, compared to how much electricity they can deliver in their lifetime.

      - We are all Human beings here together. We have to help one another, since
      otherwise there is NO ONE who will help.
      - All countries need a NO REGRETS strategic energy policy. Think ahead 7
      generations.
