The older packs were Lithium Ion, right?  More prone to fires than Lithium Iron Phosphate / LFP.  I started looking into adding solar + batteries to my home 10 years ago but balked because I knew the Lead Acid technology was soon going to be outdated.  Finally pulled the trigger this month to beat the PG&E NEM3 deadline (California thing), with a Lithium Iron solution, which I feel better about from a safety perspective.

I'm sure the price is great on 2nd hand batteries, though, and also great to give them a new lease on life.


LFP is much better for mobile. We only use that for boats/vans/RVs, and would never use even the new tesla LFP pack for that.  The older ones are NCA or NMC chemistry. They are less stable, but more energy dense. They are also problematic to extinguish if they get started.  I'll be putting these in either containment boxes, or in an adjacent concrete structure with no flammables for this reason.

The prices have actually not been very good 2nd hand until very recently. It's also still hit and miss on availability at a good price. But I just scored several of the 5K packs for about $500 each (they are typically 700-900 or more depending on the source).

I found out my wife had used the (fairly basic) adaptive cruise control on our Acura SUV to drive from the highway onto city streets (stop and go traffic) and back onto the highway again without touching the gas or brakes.  I had to remind her that it's only looking at the car ahead, it would happily blow right through a red light if there wasn't a car in front!  Presumably the Tesla software looks for red lights.  It does show how one can get a false sense of security from such things.

I have started doing some work on using certain tesla power packs from the secondary market as batteries for solar systems. There are some nice features like cooling and an available interface that make them a pretty good option. I'm trying to use them in a 24V configuration instead of 48V, because that saves a lot of money on switches and fuses, and we carry an inverter that works natively with those voltages.  There are a few conditions and caveats, but there is a lot of promise for using them in a system to support a household or small grid once they are degraded from automotive use.

That trip sure brings back some great memories. Made that drive into The City hundreds of times. Hit very few pedestrians.

(i haven't read that article, but from another source)
i think this is fantastic 
also, i thought i read where an analyst said that the largest demand for this type of product is in china
so it looks like a win-win situation
in a few years they could potentially go from the current number one emitter to a much better position
battery chem for grid storage isn't as limited as mobile tech too

roboting is hard
easier in factories or settings where pretty much all tasks/info are more or less known (closed end)
driving is an open ended scenario with almost unlimited variables, so it is much more challenging
this yt channel has been very straightforward regarding self/assisted driving
there are some very impressive improvements in the latest updated release 
(see for yourself)
