  •  that seems a bit contrived (0+ / 0-)

    given that most pipes are in fact not made of Al but steel or plastic or well anything but Al. More over Al is fairly stable. I have no reservations about taking a hammer to 100 grams of Al. I have severe reservations about doing so with any amount of nitroglycerin.

    More over I'm talking commercially not academically. There's a lot of things that exist in the academic world that are promising but until they are commercially available all they are is promise. You are correct in that this isn't my area and as such all I can do is what others do which is do my research as best I can. My research says that spinels have only become commercially available in 2013. If you have something that says definitely I'd love to read it.

    There is nothing false about my point. 1 J being released spontaneously is amusing 1MJ being released spontaneously tends to be anything but amusing. This doesn't even get into the specific hazards of Li+ namely that you have a pressured, flammable electrolyte. And no I've never said that lead acid is safe either but don't down play the cons to other batteries either.
