You've already proven that you can make them blow up

why not figuring out how to make them not explode...

so anyway, unless you live in the metro Detroit (Rock City) area, you probably will not be seeing this story on the evening "news":

Battery explosion blows out lab windows at building in General Motors Tech Center in Warren

Government Motors released this statement:
"An incident occurred about 8:45 a.m. Wednesday inside a test chamber at the General Motors Alternative Energy Center during extreme testing of an experimental battery. Chemical gases from the battery cells were released and ignited in the enclosed chamber. The battery itself was intact. The battery tested and the incident have no connection with the Chevrolet Volt or any other GM production vehicle...."

Except that it was connected to the Volt.  The battery in question was a prototype made by A123 Systems.  Guess what other coal-powered plug-n-wait vehicle they make the battery for?   Go ahead, think about it, I'll wait.

more soon
