I’ve been waiting for this for so long.. we have heard plenty of rumors about “project titan” I am pumped to see what Apple can do! The growth prospects on this are insane. If Apple can successfully integrate its ecosystem into a car... my god.
Here’s the article: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-apple-autos-exclusive-idUSKBN28V2PY
Edit: Thank you for the awards guys!
You can test a battery if you go under the hood and connect up the right meter to measure the battery integrity but why can’t a modern car employ the technology easily? (Or maybe it does and I need a new car)
My husband has been getting home from work late, and I've been working from home. His car was totally dead for a couple months and he's been using mine to get to his job. So I bought a battery and replaced it this afternoon before he got home to surprise him!
2 male construction workers working nearby stopped their pickup on their way out and asked if I needed any help. I felt so good telling them "No thanks, I got it guys, but thanks!" I had it done 10 minutes later.
Anyway, I'm so proud of myself and I feel like a badass and wanted to brag a little.
Edit: dang y'all, thanks for the awards! My husband was so excited I got his car going again! For those asking, yes it was actually dead, we had jumped it and tested it, and waited so long because we technically didn't need the second car until recently because both us were working from home. Yes my husband knows how to do it himself, but he's been working very hard overtime lately and getting home well after dark, lay off my man. I was trying to do something nice for him geez! Don't you dare insult my husband when you don't know anything about him. I can replace his car battery and do him a favor the same way he cooks and does laundry for me.
I learned from YouTube videos, so I'm adding links so all of you feel confident enough to do it yourself too! I also discovered you can google your specific car type if you want an even more straightforward approach and pics of the exact inside of the car.
With all these EV stocks popping up,
(Bloomberg article). You might say, the merger isn't confirmed yet. That is true, but that's how you maximize profit before the news sets in. Bloomberg has never been wrong about any SPAC rumour except once (Topgolf). THCB will be able to sign an extension by Dec 3rd, likely to be beforehand)
Right now, without an agreement confirmation, $THCB has barely popped yet, shares and warrants are still cheap. There is virtually 0 downside risk, THCB shares are currently at $10.44, like most SPACs, you can redeem shares to $10 cash if it fails through, which is unlikely to happen.
So what is Microvast?
TLDR: EV Battery Maker based in Texas, business focuses in Asia (China market is $$). One of the best EV battery techs right now. Already has 100M revenue this year.
It makes EV batteries based on Lithium Titanium Oxide (LTO) chemistry. Microvast's batteries have longer life, shorter charging times, and offer substantial lower cost of ownership by eliminating swapping station infrastructures required by buses running on LFP batteries.
Their batteries powered the electric buses used in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, it expects to generate more than $100 million in revenue this financial year. Most other EV companies don't even have revenue yet.
If you missed out on CIIC train, this will be the next hype play. I don't expect it to have big jumps in the next few days, but the merger agreement with Microvast should come out within the next 2 weeks. Get in early before it comes out and jumps up 50%. Shares and warrants are both cheap as fuck right now. Once merger is announced, THCB will easily go to ~$20 range.
EDIT: it is NOT a cannabis/weed stock. It is a SPAC to merge with a EV battery maker.
***BE PA... keep reading on reddit ➡
I recently purchased an item from Amazon costing roughly £250. This item happened to have a built in Li-Ion battery. I did some research on this sub and it seems a lot of people were adamant this technique is stupid and doesn't work, so naturally I gave it a go.
I ordered from the Amazon Warehouse, as these items are usually second hand or returns, meaning that a replacement cannot be issued so only option is a refund. In my case the item I got was brand new in original packaging.
I simply claimed the item had white residue on the outside and was bulging slightly, hinting that it is most likely the battery. I used some baking soda and a bit of water to simulate the leakage and sent them over some pictures. They asked me to send it back but I reminded them that sending damaged batteries in the mail is illegal. The whole ordeal took less than an hour and went very smoothly, money back in my account in only a few days.
I think this is one of the most ethical ways to get a refund on Amazon, as no small businesses using Amazon as a storefront were harmed and no drivers were reprimanded for losing/damaging parcels.
Edit: I'm not claiming this is a foolproof system, there's so many things that affect the outcome like price of the item, location, even just the rep you speak to. Take this as just one experience, do a bit of research, and come to a conclusion that you feel suits your plans!
>At the NIO Day event on January 9, 2021, NIO will unveil its first sedan, 150kWh battery, NT2.0 autonomous driving platform, and second-generation battery swap station, NIO co-founder and president Qin Lihong said on December 22 at the 100kWh battery sharing session, according to Autohome.com.cn [...] 150kWh battery pack that will give its cars a range of more than 900km.
>In addition, there are reports that Qin also mentioned that NIO will announce its plans of using LIDAR at NIO Day and NIO's solution is more powerful than what is currently being discussed in the Chinese auto industry.
This stock seems to be in such a strong position within the transportation trend of the future.
Come along for the ride!
