build a more profitable mouse trap the convince the public they need to buy it would be closer to the truthProtocols for storing lithium batteries will become normal.
Green ideology will not drive this as much as simple capitalism. Build a better mouse trap.
Remember capital has no conscious just a search for ever increasing profits .
As for Li protocols, how many people know that a Li-P battery can go critical at temperatures from as low as 50 C through to 85 C
And you can get to those temperatures on an ashphelt road and on a car dash sitting in the sun
As previously mentioned we have known the electron volt potential for all oxidation/reduction reactions for decades including Li .
A safe battery chemistry should be consistant & controlable
You can short out your car battery and all that will happen is the battery terminals will melt
Do the same to a Li battery and it will explode .
I am not against E- anything but Li power is the most pollution most dangerous battery you can make .
Funnly people think of the Pb batteries as being polluting and toxic but they are the only part on an automobile that can be recycled 100% and is profitable to recycle .
We have been making e-V powered by Pb batteries since WWII and they are used extensively indoors ( fork lifts & tow motors) plus in London & Amsterdam for inner city deliveries .
Every vehicle manufacturere has designed & built an E-V but they all abandoned the projects because there was no suitable battery technology to power them and there still isn't .
