Got Gas ?
Your Answer Here:____________________
Hint: The question is loaded.
"Hydrogen" gas would have been the popular answer.
Furthermore, not all of the choices offered above were gases.
And even further, there is another important product of batteries, the not-so-propagated, pure oxygen.
Amidst all the warnings on the battery labels (as per the neo-protection laws), hydrogen gas which can be emitted from a battery, usually when in the charge state, are indeed Flammable as stated.
However in reference to the dangers of hydrogen gas from batteries, the claims appear to be a tad over-rated.
Suffice to say, the hydrogen-scare, like the propagated need for fuses, is variable and more-so not applicable in any industry that I can think of (aside from hydrogen in large amounts, which batteries generally will not produce unless over-charging or in the "equalize" state offered by most solar and wind charge controllers). For instance, I've never met a person that blew up due to smoking over a battery, regardless of which state a battery was in.
Prior to my daily involvement and close-proximity of the battery banks, a perfect dime-sized hole was discovered atop one of the batteries. Since the damage occurred prior to my having moved closer to the batteries, it is suspected that the cause of such damage may have been the result of the 48v wind generator which kicks up into the high 80's in voltage.
Even under what must have been extreme circumstances, the battery didn't create enough hydrogen to cause any damage whatsoever, and certainly not enough to cause a fire, nor was there evidence that a flame materialized.
In fact, the damaged battery remained in operation for months with just a piece of electrical tape covering the hole before finally being retired in exchange for reducing the "core charge" exchange for its replacement (another neo-revenue generator and protection scheme).
So despite the exploded-reality of the hydrogen dangers, as per our programming, where was the bomb in the aforementioned case?
Interestingly though, when INDUSTRY has an accident, media PROGRAMMING is quick to flip-the-script to sell us that the dangers are suddenly unfounded.
Suddenly convenient, it is stated:
"It will not contaminate groundwater (it’s a gas under normal atmospheric conditions), nor will a release of hydrogen contribute to atmospheric pollution. Hydrogen does not create fumes."
(day is night, black is white, blah blah blah)
More importantly, what about the OTHER gas that a battery creates?
I'm not saying I'd bottle the stuff up and save it for when I'm on the common respirator, but it sure seems like a rather important gas for the propagation machine to forget about mentioning.
Hydrogen is lighter than oxygen and other gases that we breathe.
If hydrogen escapes the battery and you are standing over the battery, that hydrogen zips past you at a rate of (fast).
Batteries selling fast
Eight more batteries to sell, then it's off to the next level with something better.
