It scares me that my kid has his electric moped in the garage with my stuff. He could easily forget the charger and leave it on for a week. Maybe we should get a timer for the plug so it will automatically shut off after 3-4 hours.
My garage is all concrete. Unless the electric bike is placed next to a fuel source, the battery should just shursht into shames and leave a mess of soot everywhere. If you have the thing leaning up against exposed wood framing next to a gas can, then the story gets worse.
Really sorry about the disaster. Thanks for sharing. It is a real danger that deserves being repeated and corrected.
I am scared of Electric cars for this reason more so. In a crash, if they short out, it could be an instant inferno or hundreds of DC volts at very high amps. Haven’t heard about it happening, but if everyone was driving, and crashing, EVs right now, it would probably be a real thing. Especially with the “budget” card that take short cuts and use inferior materials.
