At the cost of MASSIVELY toxic battery banks.... it's a complete trade off. More gas mileage, horrific manufacture process.

Horrific demanufacturing process as well.

NiMH batteries are not "massively toxic".

They aren't? Then I guess you would have no problem with me dumping one near your water supply, right?

Go ahead? I mean, I'd be annoyed at the _trash_ in my water, but if you had tossed an oldschool nickel-made Nickel into my water supply I wouldn't freak out either.

NiMHs aren't NiCads after all (which do have the heavy metal cadmium to worry about).

So let me get this straight.

You're "OK" with someone tossing NiMH cells into your water supply? Yes, they lack cadmium and the positive electrode is nickle, but the negative electrode?

Are you "OK" with lithium in your water supply too?

The negative electrode is potassium hydroxide. So I'm not terribly concerned either.

Again, this is the WORSE CASE SCENARIO and it's actually not that bad.

So don't be an obtuse idiot.
