    “In yet another setback for lithium-ion battery technology, Mitsubishi Motors has acknowledged that it recently had a fire and an overheating incident involving the high-energy batteries.

    The automaker reported early Wednesday that a lithium-ion battery pack intended for the Mitsubishi i-MiEV caught fire while connected to a charge/discharge testing station at a Mitsubishi plant in Okayama Prefecture. In a separate incident, a charged lithium-ion battery installed in an Outlander plug-in hybrid overheated, melting battery cells and part of the battery pack.

    ”A single one of the 80 cells within the battery pack was overheated, melting adjacent cells,” a Mitsubishi spokesman told Design News in an email. “The 80 cells within the battery pack are divided and set into ‘three blocks’ within the drive battery pack. Examination found that only one of the three blocks sustained any damage.”

    Much better than hydro power or nuclear — dontcha agree? Chopping up birds is the ultimate answer to being green… ask WWF and Sierra Club — they’ll setcha straight!

    Spin baby Spin!
