Well collisions are real world happenings. It wouldn't be fair to not test them under those conditions. When consumers see how these batteries react to damage, the heat and fire, they will think otherwise.
We just had a company come in and do a presentation of their technology. They are trying to break into the military vehicle 6T battery market . Yup, one of those batteries are the last thing I'd want in an enclosed armoured personnel carrier. It goes off for whatever reason within the compartment, and you get picked off by the enemy while trying to get out.
