He doesn't use Thundersky in the motorcycle. And, the Prius batteries are compressed in a metal frame. The advantages of Thundersky, they're pretty safe and they're pretty cheap with better energy density than lead acid, nicad or nimh. For high performance, check out Enerdel. Enerdel batteries are made in the USA.
