18650-Telsa Pack Fire in custom EV

From what I seen in the vids, there was no battery management and they were possibly using a standard charger previously used to charge the lead acid version.

However the result is quite impressive :D

and probably overcharged the battery. those 3 blokes are absolute clowns. they either don't know or are too embarrassed to admit what they did wrong.
