What is important for me is that when I go to Pakistan again, I should have access to cheaper lithium batteries for solar.

In Pak, its called Rickshaw or "chand gari"... "moon buggy". I don't know why they call it that... it doesn't resemble the moon buggy in any way.

China already electrified their fleets. Good idea to get off 2 strokes.

Just a question, how do they generate electricity required to charge these vehicles? DING DING, coal fired plants.
