     I think Musk will stick with Power Wall until it's refined. In a world of B.S. he built a successful rocket AND an electric car company.  I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    The model 3 is suppose to be for sale soon. A 35K electric sedan. They are spending a ton of cash and that has investors worried.

    Let us know when the investors get a dividend!
    So far there has been a lot of PUBLIC money being spent from the reports...
    Oh but I think those were sunken costs to kick start the idea...ie not needed to be paid back.??

    Investors almost always get dividends!  The bigger problems are losing net asset value and not getting capital gain in my opinion.

    Gees theres some marketing BS on that. They say there ac coupled solution is equivilent to Dc coupled in terms of effcicncy. Thats unilikely.

    Unless they invented an 120V ac battery...that box has to contain:
    - ac to dc converter battery charger
    - battery
    - dc to ac inverter

    Its cute, stackable, and all round nice sounding  buts that an awful lot of stuff in there. And the round trip conversion of 96% simply unbelievable. For the cell cycling maybe, but surely youve gotta be dealing with more like:
    -ac-dc, 97%
    -cell cycling, 96%
    -dc to ac: 92%
    total: 86% ???
