EVTV Friday Show - April 5, 2013

- Elon's "big" Tesla surprise
- Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) Cell Overcharge Fire description
- LiFePo4 long cycle life testing - some surprising results.


Anne Kloppenborg from New Electric in Amsterdam did an electric boat conversion in one week end !

Another even more detailed LiFePO4 chemistry lesson with professor Jack

Li-ion battery fire: Mostly caused by overcharge, and the release of Oxygen from the cathod at different temperature depending on the its chemistry 

I you respect the 2 basic rules - No Over-Charge and No Over-Discharge - , the LiFePO4 cells should last 20 years - ! - charged and discharged everyday ... very promising :-)
