    DO NOT BUY BATTERIES FROM EBAY. Only buy from trusted retailers that test their cells due to an incredibly high number of fakes. Illunm, imrbatteries and liionwholesale are much more reliable places to buy cells.

    i think lithium will catch fire as soon as it is opened to the air ( li-ion for sure)

    So why use batteries at all when they could be powered by Don Lee Smith ambient energy generators or magnet motors like the Wang ? This Musk has the cheek to use the Tesla name while ignoring Tesla's technology.

    Lithium is a thing of the past, it will be replaced by Graphene and/or better yet, Hemp Batteris, or Super conductors, charge faster, and hold more energy.

    *I never thought restoring [ check Details Here>>>**t.co/jfXRNloTu0** ] only takes a handful of simple steps to do. My old (and once dead) auto batteries, cellular phone battery, drill battery, digital camera battery and tons of other batteries are all reconditioned and functioning great again! Since starting this program I have saved over $ 400 on batteries!_*

    Hello Sir,
    Very Good Morning to you !
    This is Pradeep D Vidhate here form Nashik . Recently I read you research about lithium ion cell.
    First of all congrulation to you regarding your research .It was really amazing .The purpose of this email is here I want your help and support .Because I wish to manufacture a lithium ion cell for that I am not having enough knowledge of electro chemistry can you please help me out for this .I just want to know ratio of the material , Nano size, density etc. Technical support and so on .coming towards me I am having knowledge of cell calendaring, cell packing, BMS , Battery pack, mechanical and automation etc.
    Coming towards my background I currently worked with HDFC BANK as a agriculture sales officer I have also completed my 12 th science Graduation in BCOM,ICWA degree , ITI in ELECTRICAL & MOTOR WINDING .
    So it my humble request to you kindly reward me back as soon as possible. So , lets work together in this project and let’s make our country eco friendly India.
    Thanks and regard ,
    Mr.Pradeep D Vidhate, Mrs .Swati P Vidhate.

    Nobody wants to hear this but that is a seriously low tech battery. Toyota is working on solid state batteries that will give over five times the range of current lithium ion batteries. If Toyota develops that it will put tesla out of business.
