Re: YES BUT ALL ENERGY IS NOT !!!

bdcst Yes agreed, and others fires can be much worse and more spectaluar.  Check out windmill fires for instance.  But, let me get to the real problem is SAFE ENERGYNot the battery or buss voltage.  How do we get Safe Energy?

The question begs other Qs like what type, where from, at what cost, and the list goes on.  Where from, has to be at the top if we want to move on so here is a partial answer that I hope all you young engineers pay attention to thoes flakey old reclusive types and ask the rigut questions.  If you do this it WILL lead you to a valley of knowledge that engineering schools don't teach.
  • So #1 where is this hidden repository?
  •  It is housed in Scientific, Physics, R&D Reports, Patent Offices, universities, corporations, governments, and private;
  • R&D centers, Labs, Black Ops Centers, Scientific & Physics Libraries History Books, Space......you get the Idea

NOW ask yourself:  
  • Do I have a VERY open mind?
  • Am I publically closed lipped?
  • Do I know people with these traits?
  • Can I be evasive?
  • Do I have EXCELLENT intution?
  • Can I calmly hold my own in advanced  technical discussion?
  • Can I exist on little sleep?

If you can say yes to the above you're ready to learn about alternate energy.

Start reading about: Dark, Alternate, Zero, Cold, Quantum, Fusion, Radiant,  Transmutation, Energy, New Energy and Matter,  etc.   Guys like Tesla, Moray, Mallve,Greer, Adamenko,D. Bohm, V. Schauberger,Hubbard, Farnsworth,Barak, Brown, Childress...

Re: Stupidity Risk Management

dbg your delayed fire comment is true and may be consedered preventable or a non-preventable occurence depending on how handeled.  An informed owner may ask for and receive a knowlegeable inspection by a qualified  inspector while another owner will NOT exhibt dudilligence and have a delayed fire.

Both WILL probably have insurance. Over time the actuarries will adjust the policies to reflect stupidity and real cost.  Other known safety problems such as refuel explosions at gas stations are just as, or more dangerous and exeedingly more frenquent than those of eattery packs.

Latest Analysis
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
Get your Allman Brothers albums ready. The iconic Volkswagen Microbus may be poised for a comeback, and this time it could be electric.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
