Comments are made on several possible sources of systematic error inherent in the charged particle technique of measuring absolute gravity. It is shown that the effects of air flow and electric fields are potentially large enough that the difficulty of eliminating or measuring the effects forces the conclusion that the charged particle technique is not applicable in a practical sense to the measurement of absolute gravity at this time.
