    Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are safer that gasoline powered ones. 1 US
    gallon of gasoline (in optimum conditions) has the explosive potential of
    14 sticks of dynamite.

    I could not find on this web site any specific values for capacity of
    the different format of cells, discharge rates or actual charge times.

    'Overnight charger' is the best I can find from the web site.

    It would be useful to know this info because if they are viable and
    better for the planet then I'm in.

    Well, no *wonder* it will get me so much farther than $4 worth of
    batteries or fuel cells.

    If they were competitive with NiMH batteries in capacity, discharge rates,
    etc., you'd think that they would advertise that.

    There's actually very little information on the site at all. It's all
    low-key hype.

    I admit I did not look any further than their site. That's where-the-hell
    it should be explained. :)

    From the air? They designate it an "enclosed fuel cell".

    <snip, but thanks for the info and further questions>

    Being very underwhelmed with that site overall, I'm just going to read
    that as "enclosed for values of 'enclosed' that include 'not enclosed'". :)

    Would you please stop pointing out that you are from Toronto. The rest
    of us in TO don't want everyone thinking all Torontonians are that
    daft......

    When the hell have they EVER cordoned off a city block because of a
    propane fuelled cab? Yes, they did just evacuate a large section of
    TO due to a HUGE propane explosion from a propane storage facility.

    Hydrogen fuel cells are quite safe. Have been proven quite safe over
    and over.

    Oh and your need to always slam Canon - even when they are showing
    innovation is growing very very tiresome.
