Actually, Congress sets the bounds for what the FCC can fuck with. The Communications Act of 1934 set up the FCC. Title II of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 is the basis for Net Neutrality.

So the bunch of blowhards on Capitol Hill is ultimately to blame for this shit, just as it is to blame for all the other shit perpetrated by the Fderal Government. That is where the goddam buck stops. Not the President's desk, and CERTAINLY not with a bunch of corrupt bureaucrats.

80% capacity is considered end of life, by the way, but in practical terms you could re use that battery in another vehicle or as a UPS for many more years.

Re-use? Why? Just continue using it normally. 80% capacity isn't EOL in the original application. Not even close. So your car takes 5 seconds instead of 4 to reach 100 km/h. So it only travels 240 km instead of 300 km. So what. That isn't anywhere near useless.
