Is this no-cost battery for Electric Vehicles useful for a sequel to “Who Killed the Electric Car?”?

Question by Dr. Quixote: Is this no-cost battery for Electric Vehicles useful for a sequel to "Who Killed the Electric Car?"?
At least one pickup truck in Vancouver works from "dead batteries" -- cheap and affordable because they're free, taken from scrapped piles of dead batteries. Would this be a good topic for a follow-up movie, that could perhaps be titled, "Who Brought Back The Electric Car", or a movie about the GM Volt, perhaps?

The journalist for the Burnaby New Westminster News Leader said, in the byline, "Could Make Electric Vehicles More Affordable."

Not sure you could get a whole movie out of that. A short film, perhaps?

Is a car battery “tray” required or necessary for vehicles?

Question by Chris B: Is a car battery "tray" required or necessary for vehicles?
Bought a used car and the battery died.

Bought a new one and installed it, however, there was no battery tray in the engine compartment.

Do I need to get one or is it okay for the battery to sit in there as long as it is secured? Will my new battery drain quicker with no tray? What is the benefit of the tray? Thanks!

It is a safety feature to keep your battery in place.
