    makes sense:

    1) don't buy an ev in the south unless you don't have to park in the sun

    2) buy an ev with a proven active cooling system

    3) battery chemistries differ, buy an ev with proven longevity

    4) buy the largest battery possible and use the least amount possible

    5) slow charge as much as possible

    Good video, but 20min of that monotone voice is hard to pay attention too.
