What is the cost of one full battery charge for the Tesla Roadster?

Question by Tahini Classic: What is the cost of one full battery charge for the Tesla Roadster?
I like that electric sportscar. But is it really as efficient as they say? Wouldn’t your power bill end up looking a lot like your fuel bill used to with a regular car if you used it in the same manner?

Best answer:

Answer by John Sol
It does 2cents to the mile I heard, It must be efficient to get that sort of performance. It’s all on thier website.

Do a calculation for how much you would drive and figure out what sort of electric bill you would get, then compare that to a gas bill for the same mileage

On the Lionel Polar Express G Gauge train set ;need to know where the battery compartment is located .?

Question by Anteater400: On the Lionel Polar Express G Gauge train set ;need to know where the battery compartment is located .?
I bought this set at Target over a year ago; there are 6 or 8 phillips screws under the engine, but I don’t see any directions as to how to fit the C batteries in. Seems strange to have to open up all those screws each time you want to change batteries. Would appreciate someone’s help.

Best answer:

Answer by MaryS
If you look on page 7 of the Owner’s Manual, there are instructions and diagrams explaining how to replace the batteries.

Hope that helps!

How can I clean battery acid that leaked on an old electric train?

Question by Rez: How can I clean battery acid that leaked on an old electric train?
My Kids and me are trying to rezerrect an old Lionel Train–it hasnt been used in almost 25 years or more, upon opening the engine car, there was an Everyready battery still in there completley eroding and dried acid everywhere–I need tips on how to clean this please

Best answer:

Answer by Ed C
Soda water or a mixture of baking soda and water will nuetralize the acid. Do not use any soda pop as it has dextrose or sugar type substances in them and that is yet another mess
good luck.

RC controlled –> BATTERY OPERATED <–HO trains?

Question by John G: RC controlled –> BATTERY OPERATED <--HO trains?
Seems to me that if HO scale trains could be powered by on-board batteries (or batteries carried in a dummy unit, tender, or rolling stock) and then radio controlled (like an RC airplane or car) THEN the entire issue of track wiring would go away and operation would be more prototypical.

BUT….no one seems to be making anything close to this. DCC is not close. But I’m betting I’m not the only one to have thought of this and hoping someone else has either done a conversion -or know who DOES them? Your thoughts?
Jim: Actually, Jim, track power could be used to charge the batteries. Track work which is electricially tricky (like reverse loops, etc.) can simply be isolated “dead.” At some point, batteries will die, of course -but the replacement would be relatively seldom, right?

Best answer:

Answer by jim
Charging batteries is a bit of a pain in the …, well, you know. Batteries do wear out, and it would add to the expense of a already expensive hobby. Radio control isn’t really needed because your in the same room as the train. They do need something better than DCC, but I think that can be done with out a radio
