Weekly Roundup, Friday 23 January 2015

Good morning A quick heads up on our two tours in May and June.  If you’ve been thinking about either, there’s not much time remaining to think – it is now time to decide to come and join in. Our deal is about to expire with Poseidon for the Arctic Expedition in May, and that’s […]

All the USB Power You Could Ever Need

Should You Wait for a Hydrogen/Fuel Cell Powered Vehicle?

Should You Wait for a Hydrogen/Fuel Cell Powered Vehicle?

The last year or two has been full of exciting developments with battery powered electric vehicles (BEV), and the concept of BEV seems to have ‘sucked all the oxygen’ out of the alternative fuels discussion.
