Default Re: Anonymous Electric Bike

Very true of any Lithium rechargeable cells. I have seen a few Lithium Ion on the surplus market, bare, no fuse, no charging controller or temperature shut down. I would not touch them with a 10' pole. The Sony Li-Ion plant burned to the ground 15 years ago? As Wikipedia said, the electrolyte in these is flammable. We all can remember the cell phones that burned some users. Also some Laptop batteries had to be recalled.

These are not toys as Bikeguy Joe advised.
