Re: Thailand version of Google Street View launched

An old thread, but still current. They've just been up my Soi doing a new capture for street view. In the past I've often seen the car going around with it's camera turret on top looking very strange. Today, it was a Grab motorcycle. Instead of having a green bag on the back, the guy had a tripod, ...

Re: Hua Hin Speed Cameras

Just for info. Driving up past Nakorn Sawan from Bangkok.. Some way past Angthong but before Singburi I got a laser alert before a radar alert. Traffic stop was a couple of km further up the road. Looks like they have new toys to play with. Oh, no more visible flash, they're now using infrared inst...

Re: Keto diet and low carb eating

I'm not a Keto person, and doubt I ever will be, but I've just seen this article, and thought it may be of interest to many who are. Keto diets can cause premature ageing of the organs The ketogenic diet, commonly known as the keto diet, has gained immense popularity due to its efficacy in rapid we...

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

^In my opinion, self driving cars only make sense when the technology has got to the point where they're capable of doing it without human intervention. When they're basically a driverless taxi that could be used by a non-driver, a disabled person or is capable of making journeys by itself to pick ...

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

My own view is that two threads is a good idea but not any more. We have a lot of people on the forum who are not able to n Thailand but can offer good input . Yes, there are the pro and anti lobbies but also a good amount of fence sitters like myself. Saw a few ads for e-scooters or PCX trikes lat...

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

Well, considering I only bought a new car last year, nothing here will affect me for a while. But currently, an EV wouldn't suit me, primarily down to range and availability of recharging facilities (well NE of Bkk). So my interest is more about the next few years, although still interested in what...

Re: Solar power setup for your home in Thailand

Reading that tells me they don't want you to be independent of the grid. And if home all day, you probably won't have much excess to sell back to the grid, if that's even going to be available.

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

At the moment, the Atto 3 is looking the favourite for me but I'll probably be buying early next year and there are many new models in the pipeline so I'm looking at anything that comes along. Actually, I've no interest in long distance driving and something like the Netta V or the BYD Dolphin woul...

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

To be honest, I would be far happier if this thread was just about the EV cars available in Thailand and which one to buy but it's full of endless posts from people who clearly have no interest in them. That would be nice, and maybe a new thread needs to be started .. "EV in Thailand", as...

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

At root, I suppose the underlying issue is one of energy density. A 500kg Tesla battery contains half the kw/h of energy than a 20 litre jerry can of petrol. Nothing can be done about it. I think that just shows how inefficient petrol is burned. 1 L petrol = 9kWh (diesel 10kWh) Not sure what you ma...

Re: Electric Vehicles (EV) Thread

I've followed this debate but haven't contributed and will remain on the fence for now ( we have and need a truck , so you're not going to convert me). Got 3 possible models coming, end of this, or next year. Ours is only a couple of years old so not gonna happen for at least a decade - we'll see h...
