    US doesn't have a very large supply of lithium, it's mostly China (imagine that) in addition to other countries including areas in South America. batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/availability_of_lithium Also mentioned in this article is the need for rare earth magnets, again China controlling about 95% of the market of REM. Sooo...anyone else seeing this as an issue in the future of EV's??

    That "carbon fiber" retainer is NOT carbon fiber. If it was, it could very easily short the battery. It is a fiberglass retainer (hence the white fibers/yellow resin). Also... stating "it is completely safe" is VERY FALSE!!!! EDIT THIS VIDEO SO MORE PEOPLE DO NOT DO THIS!!!!

      the electrolyte material was designed by Tesla. The 2170 battery form
      factor was designed by Tesla. The only thing Panasonic are doing is
      handling the manufacturing process. Same way Apple designs everything
      and ships it off to Foxconn to do the actual production.

    I've always wondered why Tesla uses small round batteries? I would have thought that a larger square battery maybe the size of 9 of these put together would be a better use of space under the car, and would be more efficient as less metal would be used on the outside of the battery. Plus being square would mean you could pack them in together and not have that wasted space in between the round cells.

    • joeaverager

      They are probably round b/c it is easier to manufacturer that way. Rolling machines, rolls of foil and all that.

    • Ckc dillpickle

    You're going to have all kinds of idiots getting injured just because they'll think that a battery is safe to tear apart just because it's discharged. These are not that different from the 18650 batteries and when those get punctured, they heat up, very hot, charged or not.

  • Iamfree Areyou
    Iamfree Areyou 6 месяцев назад

    A battery having zero charge does NOT make it safe to dissect. What makes a battery unsafe to open is not the battery having a charge, it's the stuff inside the battery. First off, gasses released when you puncture it are toxic. Second, the battery can contain caustic solutions. Third, lithium can react violently when it comes into contact with air IE explosion (you know, all those exploding battery/exploding cell phone videos).
