Just ended. So I'm sure it will replay. It was cool they were making lipo's for new electric cars. These things were huge. Looked like 20,000 Mah cells. Once they had a pack for the car. It was litteraly 5ft x 1ft x 3ft. Can you imagine that in a car accident? BOOM!

Just watched it, very cool. When they start wrapping the metal do they put something between it? It just looked like they wrapped the thin metal over each other with nothing in the middle.

i think they said if i remember right, that the lithium metal is sticky, so they put a clear plastic film in between layers, i think you can kinda see the spool of plastic to the side while they wrap the metal.

I thought lithium reacted with air. However at the start they just slide in a 5 kg bar of plain lithium and press it to a thin plate? Why does it not oxidize or even burn right away?

i dont think its THAT reactive. i know sodium and potastium will oxidize in a short period of time, but lithium isn't as reactive as either of those.

maybe its actually a lithium alloy, they may has added anti oxidation agents to the metals to make it more stable.

That's just what I was thinking. No need to spend all of that money when I can easily make them at home. hehhehe

its amazing how much they end up charging for them. the lithium must be expensive, and it doesn't look like they pump out very many at a time. i can imagine as they slowly get more popular, they will get faster methods of making them just like anything else.

$89.43/kg

I also noticed that it is three times lighter than aluminium, maybe the future heli upgrades will be made of lithium
