Ah, but what if people turned kettles on at the same time too? What then? :D

What a day everyone gets a cuppa tea and a slice of toast before work! I'm looking forward to it.

Power usage for full ev is estimated to be 10 to 15per cent. We are aiming for full ev around 2050 ffs. Hardly even an issue. Data centers must use as much already

Tesla Battery pack fire, or how not to reuse Tesla Batteries.

I knew about the 18650 and 2170 battery formats stuffed inside the Tesla. But actually seeing them all lined up like cartridges on an ammo belt makes me think surely this can't be the future of battery technology! Must be a manufacturing and recycling nightmare.

I have been through this exact thought process.
Lookup the recycling process of batteries. Lead acids are the easiest. Lithium's have all sorts of inferno horror stories. (After that...You start thinking....is this it?.....the future of transport?....hmmmm)

Tesla only used 18650 cells at the start because that was the cheapest way to build battery packs, I assume they thought long and hard about the issue before they build the Giga factory

I suspect module in the video above had no BMS, its just a salvaged or recycled section of a crashed Model S/3, hackers love cheap cells from crashed cars but they need to be careful

Yep! no protection circuitry and the packs were physically abused before the incident as well.
Just a very clear lesson in how not to treat the batteries.
The previous video shows the car being hammered!

At the end of the video he says that the battery cooling circuit was disconnected and the battery management controller was also disconnected.

But yes, a cautionary tale that these batterie packs are not toys.

Friend dropped his portable phone charger (effectively a battery).
When it hit the ground it exploded. We were both really surprised how easy it went up in flames.
