Otto Zobel was around 100 years ago, and yes it took considerable experimentation and development to achieve the Zongle's current performance.Wow, wonder how they reverse engineered how to put a resistor in series with a capacitor? Or was it after years of independent research?
This is fallacious. Whatever problems early Teslas had that resulted in 5 'bricks' appear long to have been resolved, or we would certainly be hearing about it still from the nay-sayers. All the references that came up when I googled Tesla brick were dated 2012 and 2013, before the Model S had been released.BTW, the Tesla does have its problems. Brilliant technology, but regardless of the Lithium battery there are easy ways to destroy a $USD42,500 85KwH battery bank. Read the warranty, then Google 'Tesla Brick' and you will know more detail.
