starting to see this exact line pop up all over ...

misinformation is caused by use of li-ion label. all motorcycle li-ion batteries are LiFePO4 or lithium iron phosphate, which are inherently safe and almost impossible to cause a fire... even after wild abuse.

VS lithium cobalt on 787 ... also call li-ion are inherently unsafe and need all sorts of safeties to keep from going into thermal runaway (explosion)
