I'm mowing my damn lawn. I've left it for like a month and it's taken two batteries just to do the hill by the front.
Still love my electric lawnmower though. It's got a brushless DC motor, which uses a small computer and some hall effect sensors to make a DC motor run *almost* as sweet as a fifty-year-old AC motor, except with the added feature of being able to automatically increase power when going through thick grass. Hence it chewing through the juice today. :P
Sitting here in the outdoors makes me want to get some solar panels. I think if we were in the outdoors more, we would want to protect it more.
