Carbon Fiber and Li Ion batteries?
I've been fearful of the Lithium ion batteries in my bike lights, and I ride a carbon fiber bike most of the time. Should I be worried about the battery catching fire and setting my bike ablaze?
OK, now the real reason for my post. Reading about the Boeing 787's problems all I can think is that this is a known problem with Li-ion batteries. I've read about the Tesla cars too, and I think the same thing. I DON'T want to be in a vehicle that depends on these things, especially one that's 38000 feet up. It just seems too risky. A single battery may never give you a problem, but put an array of thousands of 18650s in parallel and you're bound to have a problem.
I think I'll pass on the Tesla, and wait for them to come up with a solution for the 787. My Keygos light OTOH is fine, but even with that I don't let it charge unattended overnight.
