The intro is great in this talk, but good protection of your head with a lightweight inexpensive bike helmet is to me a great investment! My daughter, who has had at least one bad concussion and she uses a very nice and comfortable helmet designed for skateboarders!

Good vac, used the MDV-2 version of this for a couple of years. Still was using canned air on many jobs so got an O2 Hurricane rechargeable to supplement.

Would be great to update this with 2014 model specs, and next time Smart should have someone who actually understands the tech specs of the car instead of a marketing wonk!

Seeing is believing! Showing the JB Premium Edition in action was all I needed to place an order. Looking forward to plugging my miserly Fortwo EV into the JB PE soon!
Will the WiFi board be ready with the JB PE, or come later? I placed an order for both.

Agree, this is a repost of the Gizmag video from 2009. Now there are many production "narrow track vehicles" available, from the more bicycle based Organic Transit ELF to the likes of the SmartCar Fortwo. An update to this with newer, available technologies would be great!

Regardless of your belief of helmets, a simple reflective flag on a spring which sticks out away from center of your bike works VERY well for our family! This was hard to find in bicycle stores or online in US works VERY well for our family. The version without LED is available direct from the maker in Canada: http://www.flashback.ca/cycling_accessories.html

I see the HF #67029 battery was the red one used in this video and no longer listed in the HF catalog. Headed over there today in Durham NC as I have a dead 18v B&D Single Source battery and interested in this rebuild option. I found 68860 at HF today which seems to have the same size and configuration of NiCd batteries as HF #67029 I'll post results of updating a B&D 18v with the HF #68860 batteries over the weekend.

Sorry didn't catch this earlier. I put the rebuild aside, because running the old B&D batteries through a couple of cycles on the GT Power A8 charger restored 2 of the 3 batteries to nearly new status. The B&D chargers are rubbish. The fast charger is great to have around when using battery packs, but for charge cycling then storing, get a charger like the A8. I use the A8 for ebike batteries primarily, thus the higher voltage (36v lead acid) and current (up to 7a). smaller iMAX or GT Power versions may do for you.

Thank you. We are negotiating a Fortwo ED lease now and I am going to pay much closer attention to the delivery condition of the car since it will be truck freight delivered to our home! Then will do the preinspection at local dealer on return. 
Already talked about my concerns over possible ramifications of turning in my LEAF without its pre inspection and sure enough, it came back to bite me. But it bit me in a spot I was not prepared for. I got a statement chargin...

This was reposted recently. Manhy of us who have "narrow track vehicles" from the more bicycle based Organic Transit ELF to the likes of the SmartCar Fortwo would appreciate an update to this with newer, available technologies would be great!

From Europe, we applaud the testing of an electric velomobile for delivery by UPS as opposed to Amazon's drone proposals! Looking forward to deployment of these trikes in select North American markets as well!
While Amazon thinks drones are the future of delivery services, for now at least companies like FedEx and UPS still require people power to get packages to your door. In fact, people power is exactly what UPS is using to delivery packages locally in Europe, where electronically-assisted trikes have been delivering packages in the older sections of Dortmund, Germany.
