Lithium-manganese Batteries In EVs Much Safer Than Dreamliner Chemistry

Donald Sadoway, an MIT professor of electrical engineering, told Flightglobal that Tesla has properly engineered its lithium-cobalt-oxide battery “to prevent the domino effect, while Boeing evidently doesn't have that engineering.”

This week, Musk announced via Twitter that he is talking with the chief engineer of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, Mike Sennett, reported Reuters. The post followed a January 18 message from Musk to Boeing intimating that “Tesla & SpaceX are happy to help with the 787 lithium ion batteries." No word yet from Boeing on whether or not the company will take advantage of Musk's offer.
