MAKE subscriber Charles writes in about his electric shopping cart project called the “LOLrioKart”. The cart is equipped with “a cache of massive aircraft wet-cell NiCd batteries” and a 15 hp electric motor. The website has a nicely documented build log, which is great for anyone looking into making an electrically driven vehicle. Thanks Charles!

What originally started as a whimsical attempt to strap a set of large nickel cadmium batteries, discovered in a dusty back room, to something – anything – has turned into a full-fledged ambitious engineering project.
