    Dutch media is reporting that a fire at an ebike warehouse is suspected to have been caused by a malicious attack.

    The incident started at around 4:20 am on Sunday at the facility belonging to Ebike Nederland in Cuijk in the province of North Brabant. A BMW 1 Series drove into the building's lobby and the local fire department had to deploy four engines to tackle the blaze that was not fully extinguished until late evening. Luckily no lithium batteries were stored in the vicinity as they would have made the blaze a lot worse and given off dangerous fumes.

    The mayor of Cujik Wim Hillenaar described the breach as an ‘attack’ and the police also said it was a targeted action as there are no signs of mechanical damage to the BMW. Arno Cup, director of Ebike Nederland, told NieusFiets, "Of course you do not accidentally drive into a building. The power has also not been on yet. When we have that again, we can view the camera images and know more. We can probably look back on that a lot."

    The fire has caused significant damage to the facility, Cup has yet to fully account for the damage but believes it to have run into the "millions" of Euros. He said, "There were many bicycles ready, which were almost complete. If we had not had to wait for certain parts, they would already have been delivered." Fortunately, the contents of the building were insured and Cup believes the company meets the conditions set by the insurer.

    Demand for ebikes, especially the delivery bikes that Ebike Nederland specializes in, is at an all-time high. As Cup puts it, "Because of Corona, everyone who can bake a hamburger is going to have a home delivery." So, was this a case of corporate sabotage from a rival company or simply an accident? The situation is still developing and we'll update you as more news breaks.

    Information = Volume divided by Rhetoric?

    Impedance = Voltage/Resistance?

    Watt's wrong with you? Are you at ohm amped up on energy drinks?

    short the leads and it will think it is ok. Don't forget to open the leads when it is warm enough. Unless its a transformer then get some batteries and run it on those

    I should have mentioned if you see the mercury switch flash the transformer is ok. But I never had a transformer go bad.
