    This article was just posted in Treehugger regarding Elon Musk’s claim to need 200 Gigafactories to supply demand for electric cars. Wouldn’t it be perfect to have Focus Fusion installed in each one of those factories to supply the initial charging for the batteries, so they’d be all ready to go when leaving the factory? See this link to Treehugger for the article on his presentation:

    Focus Fusion technology would also be useful for keeping the batteries charged when out and about in his vehicles…

    Should we be tweeting Mr. Musk about our crowdfunding effort?

    You overlook the fact that the FF units would power the factory and recycling facilities… thus bringing FF’s cost savings to the entire product life cycle.

    And that would be huge savings indeed.

    As for fusion power, Musk has spoken approvingly of the possibilities of fusion power but he’s only mentioned neutronic fusion in his talks and is designing his facilities for solar because that’s the non-carbon power that we’ve got at the moment.
