At this point ESS knows there are a lot of people interested. I don't see a need to get a list together of people who would give them a full $5k or whatever so they develop it.

I agree with Chewy, but on a little different point. What IF the company goes out of business. We don't know their financial situation. If they would go out of business and have these full down payment deposits, you'll be SOL getting your money back.

Is ESS taking a risk developing it? Yes
Did ESS take a risk developing all of their supercharger kits? Yes

This thread alone has shown them that we will help mitigate that risk. I don't know how much market research they were able to do with their other kits, but this is pretty good market research to gauge interest.
