Is Lithium-ion a Borgia Battery?: I've recently learned that lithium-ion batteries might be a triple threat – B...

For four years I've heard nothing but safety talk from lithium-ion battery manufacturers, ideologues, politicians and would-be end users. This is the first report I've seen that threatens to burst the bubble. If H2 S gas was generated in GM’s advanced battery laboratory we need to know how much H2 S gas was generated, how it was generated and how long the process took. We also need to know to a certainty whether similar problems might exist in large format lithium-ion batteries from other manufacturers. I understand that every battery manufacturer wants to keep its secret sauce recipe proprietary, but there comes a time when customer safety has to take precedence over competitive advantage.
