"I see lithium playing a big part for big players Linde, Toyota, Jungheinrich etc. for national contracts, supermarkets transport companies etc. but until it is tried and tested i don't see many independents getting involved there is too much risk if batteries fail, its not just a case of replacing a cell when it fails.".

"How could anyone be that gullible to think that a tracking system would only be used to find the closest engineer ? I can assure you they've been used for a lot more than that. ".
