My '93 Chevy G20 w/5.0 is creeping towards the red 18v area of the
gauge. It's always been in the middle gauge range until just recently.
It doesn't get driven much, so i haven't really noticed it before.
Controlling overcharge is what has turned out to be most expensive in
the new electrical cars.
The batteries have been very expensive and the lithium cells are
sensitive to overcharging.
The controlling mechanism needs to monitor each and every cell while
If the are overcharged they can blow up and burn.
This used to be a problem in the computers and telephones too.
This has become less of a problem now and the prices are coming down
It will of course mean that the price of electrical cars will also
come down a lot too.
