The video is well-presented, but the presenter appears to be unsure of the correct terminology for battery capacity: Battery capacity is measured in Amp-hours or Watt-Hours. The Tesla batteries are 60 kWatt hours (60 kWh) or 75 kWh. Omitting the Hours term is a common mistake. Amps is just an instantaneous measure of current flow, whereas AmpHours is the total energy in the battery (or released by the battery when in use.) John

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
