  • Q1 Exactly how long will it take (in hours, mins, secs) to run out of power assuming no traffic jams?
  • Q2 Exactly how far from home (miles, feet, inches) would you be when the charge is fully dissipated?
  • Q3 Within 1 degree how cold will it be on the night that this happens? 
  • Q4 Will it be raining?
