Manufacturer Defects on Lithium-Ion Batteries Can Be Deadly for Electric Car Owners
Lithium-ion or Li-on batteries are highly dangerous, unlike what most people believe. Many folks assume that an electric battery is “good for the planet,” and therefore must be a modicum of safe when used in an electric car. But the truth about electric car batteries tells a different story. Electric car batteries have a high-level of issues with:
- Necessity of protection for circuits to prevent thermal runaway
- Batteries easily stressed and damaged
- Transportation regulations when shipping in large quantities
- Impossible to rapidly charge at temperatures under freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit)
- Degradation of energy when stored at high temperatures on high voltages
- High operational temperatures can start flash fires
- High runaway internal cell temperatures
- Difficult to recycle (99% of lead batteries are recycled, by comparison)
If these manufacturer’s defects sound familiar because you experienced them on your vehicle, you can call us at the Guardian Lemon Law Group at 888.341.8537.
What Is “Thermal Runaway” and Why Does It Happen to Lithium-Ion Batteries?
Thermal runaway is the massive overheating of an electric battery. This condition and situation can occur when there is a high-level energy discharge in an electric battery, contributing to:
- High energy discharge and overheating
- Cracking of electrolytes in the first gassing phase
- Decomposition of the separator and anode
- Ignition of flash fires
- Explosion of vapor clouds
- Prone to short circuits
- Stored energy converted to intense heat
- Hydrocarbon combustion likely
- Cracking and flashing of electrolyte
- Smoky gas discharge
- Full battery combusts and explodes
- Li-Ion batteries stored inside of fixed facilities can explode for high fire risks
- Vehicle collisions of an electric battery can cause explosion of the battery
If your Tesla has had an experience with thermal runaway, it can be a scary experience. Your Tesla battery will overheat and practically explode, and will get so searing hot that you run the risk of being seriously injured just being in the same house where it is being charged up. This can be a scary and dangerous scenario. For that reason, you should call us today to let us review your claim with you and for you for free. It is easy to make the call to us right now!
