1 pointI see it states that some of the materials used to make modern batteries can give off dangerous gasses if they get wet. That sounds suspiciously lit WW2 submarine technology! I have been looking at changing my car lately. I wanted a hybrid that can take a large dog in the back. The Lexus RX looked good until I found it can only go 30 miles on electric power from its batteries. Oh hum - back to my trusty diesel and bugger the pollution!
