> the problem with batteries is recycling!
No, it's not! =P
A good set of well-tended lithiums will last 8 years, after that they're
mostly copper and aluminium (that's how some ppl pronounce it).
Copper is semi-precious, and aluminum is trivial to recycle. (Only about
5% is actually lithium. =P
You also might have a number of other elements, Iron, phosphorus,
cadmium, yitrium, etc. But yeah, Most of the better batteries advertise
a cycle life between 3 and 5 thousand cycles depending on how well you
maintain them and how hard you drive them. Even after all that, they're
still better than 75% of their original capacity... =P
DO NOT USE OBAMACARE.
