Belite Batteries demonstrate their power!

There are many things to do in preparation for the first public showing of our electric airplane.

(I call the plane the Electric Lite.)

One item on the preparation list is a battery test.

There’s nothing like a bunch of very high capacity lithium batteries to put smoke into a building when showing their power during a discharge test.  That’s exactly what happened when we first tested our batteries, about a year ago.  Here’s the video we made at the time, which has never before been seen or posted:

Some of the technical details of this battery test are contained within the video.

It’s not much to look at — just batteries, enormous dummy load resistors, a lot of smoke, and a room that got warmer and warmer as the test progressed.  But maybe, just maybe, you’ll enjoy looking at it and wondering:  what is Belite up to?

Please watch and enjoy!
