I'm kinda "watching" the video at 2x speed. At around 7:25, in 1Q 2020, he essentially says that for the highest priority folks (battery condition is such that the person needs help the most), they will temporarily install a healthier or newer Nissan battery pack. There's more to the video and if someone wants to summarize, go ahead. I have no interest nor time to do so.

Sounds like bandaids and stalling.

Took him 14 minutes to say: We know many are growing impatient from waiting so we will finally be offering our product next year so we dont' loose your business. Stay tuned for more details because we dont' have all the specifics worked out yet.

Feels like me and especially Muxsan is getting way more done with less resources.

Definitely agree--what you, Evsenhanced and Mux have done is, frankly, amazing.

That said, while the video answers the questions on "all the answers you seek", it comes off way more as a sales pitch than an update to the existing stakeholders about progress and timelines. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but I really expected more concrete answers.

I still don't like that there are so many "secrets" and "things we can't share just yet". I really want the best for John and Fenix Power, but I'll be a lot more positive when I see something concrete.

At https://www.facebook.com/groups/NissanL ... 2401692063, we finally got some replies from a Grant Posell who claims he's the COO of Fenix Power. When asked if there's a working prototype installed in a Leaf, his reply made on 12/29/19 was "We have a prototype that is still in development. That is why we are beginning installation of other tested packs first."

From https://www.linkedin.com/in/grantposell/, it appears he has no EE nor other related technical background.

Indeed.
Muxsan doesn't seem to have paranoid fantasies about everyone steeling his idea.
