Agreed - the danger level in FLA batteries is very limited. Additionally they will not cause a danger if charged or discharged incorrectly unlike Lithium types.

Default Re: What is the interest in a complete lithium battery conversion kit

I've seen customers bring in batteries for core
charge and the whole thing except the bottom is
completely burned up.

Looks like a H2 pop/fire occurred and caught the
plastic of the battery cell covers then the casing
on fire which consumed the entire case down to
the battery tray.

I would hate to see the underside of the seat or
other areas near that battery case fire.

Multiply that times 100 and you have a Lithium fire.

That depends a lot on the chemistry of the lithium battery you're using.

I haven't heard of any Leaf modules exploding or catching fire. Look up the torture test videos Nick from EV Battery posted on YouTube. They can take a lot of abuse.

Leaf modules are what I use and I am sure that they would catch fire if you over charge them. They are not that different than my RC batteries. Don't get me wrong - I am very happy with my Lithium conversion - but I know what I'm doing and I have worked with Lithium batteries for 15 years or so.

I know what NCPW is reflecting to. Nick put a torch to them and several other things to demonstrate how well they were made. This does not discount what "can" occur as overcharging is dangerous, but I have seen smaller cheaper lithium's come completely apart with the test Nick performed.

I had a 3000mAh 18650 battery short it self out on my work bench.

Dang thing was a flying fire missile across the shop.

Managed to don a rawhide glove and get it outside.
