    Just kinda wondering if I could charge my hybrid car using my Thunderbolt or USB ports, and how long do you reckon it would take?

    edit : its one of those Toyota Prius thingos

    No. Hybrid cars charge off of AC power, which a USB port does not provide.

    Depends on the mAh the battery of your hybrid can hold and if it has a USB port.
    USB gives 5V at 100mA (USB 2.0 and 150mA (USB 3.0).

    Easier method sell the prius! no need to charge it then

    Buy a Honda Civic Type R (FN2) and stick petrol in it! no charging necessary.

    Yes. Is it a game to throw dumb subjects like this one or what? :confused:
