    Interesting but I wish they would sell to hobbyists.

    Not a chance. I think they are tied up with a couple of major auto manufacturers now that have invested in the company recently. Zero ought to hope that they continue to receive the Farasis batteries for their bikes and don't get cut out of the action in the future due to demand by the big guys once production and sales of their EVs are ramped up.

    OUCH! That could really dampen Zero's ability to exist and thrive. I hope for Zero's sake that doesn't happen

    I know. I've tried calling and emailing in the past with no response. Finding decent pouch cells is getting pretty hard these days.
