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...

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.
