When lithium comes into contact with water it becomes highly volatile, I would not be using water here. It is another reason why they spontaneously combust and explode. Lithium, in general, is a highly volatile and unstable material…Insanity that they claim this is the future and, no, nothing will iron these flaws out unless a new material equivalent to lithium is found for these batteries.
The rarity of these materials and the constantly expanding demand for them, due to these vehicles, and the inefficient manner in which it is exploited in, largely, Africa via slave labor, is not sustainable; an irony, I know.
However, this is all by design.
