Powering up your house? The Tesla Powerwall is the one for you!
In a world blessed with technological advancements, it is a thought to ponder as to how these gadgets or machines work. There must be a force that dictates their life cycle. What moves them to function? A technological gadget could be likened to that of a person. A child crawling to gather his or her toys. A student exhausting his or her energy in studying. A colleague finishing his or her task assigned by the boss. All of these scenarios require an external force that will cause men to move. What is it? It is motivation; a drive to reach or aim a goal. The child gets his or her toys to satisfy his need to play. The student studies hard in order to get an excellent grade. The colleague works his or her ass off to gain the trust of his or her boss where he can land a promotion all with the aim to receive a higher salary.
Gadgets are of no difference to people. Different technological feats, from simple to complex machines, exist due to the brilliant minds of their creators. For these gadgets, though, it is not motivation that commands them to work. What gives life to cell phones so that you can text or call your loved one? What is the life source of your flashlight so that you could see things in the dark? What moves your clock to remind you always of the time? The answer may be pretty much clear to you now. It is power. Even for humans, the motivation is their source of strength and power to go on living. It is motivation that powers a student to attend classes diligently. It is motivation that pushes a mother to wake up early in the morning to cook for her family. It is motivation that drives men to do his or her job to close that deal. It is motivation that lets scientists and experts innovate inventions for better, simpler, and easier living.
And when we talk about power as the driving force that gives life to a gadget, the next question is, where is it exactly stored? Clearly, power just doesn’t appear and wear off anywhere out of the blue. When you charge your cell phones, flashlights, power banks, Ipods and Ipads, the electric power go to these gadgets’ batteries where they are stored for later use. Yes, it is the battery that we are talking about here. It is one of those simple things that people take for granted, yet without its existence, a gadget will not be brought to life. With advanced and powerful batteries, what else could be brought to life! Well, Tesla batteries will shock you as they introduce the possibility of a house to be battery-powered!
