Battery idea, yes or no?
#11
I am in Madagascar. I tried buying old computer batteries and all I got was 800mah cells and heaters. They all were scrap.
People spend about 50% of their disposable income on phone communication here.
I am trying to buy Lifepo4 cells from China but expect that they will not be shipped because of dangerous goods policies by courier companies for this country.
I am now researching which phone battery is the most easily obtainable here.
Since lithium is superior and less expensive than lead-acid lack of access to this technology is really a developmental hindrance for African countries.
