ummm in which universe will batteries be cheaper than ice cars? you make a statement about apple and its electronics...... how much was an I phone 10 years ago?....how much is an i phone today?....exactly. Electronics will never get cheaper. in 1970 electronics were built by union labor (Philco...remember them? Edison Electric, IBM ...still kicking? etc.) now electronics are cheaper because they are made with slave labor, they cannot get cheaper again, how could that happen? world labor rates are rising, regulated rare earth heavy metals, suddenly become free? wars will be fought over countries like Georgia for their magnesium. China is buying every rare mineral it can. People will come to the realization that a Texas power outage, means you are stranded for a month, or worse yet... a hurricane mid night evacuation means sudden population control, cause the battery isn't charged, and we cannot stall that hurricane for 8 hours to get a full 80% charge....hurricanes just don't seem to listen. countless other catastrophes, will show the battery charger nonsense. I'm not against electric cars, in theory, they can be very cool, with instantaneous torque. I just wont bet my survival on one. they offer no logical sense to the consumer, however, Batteries are necessary for the next gen. self driving car that you cannot own.
