Offering it in 5ah packs of X voltage, would eliminate the possibility of a parallel cell issue causing further problems, a single 5ah pack can easily deal with a 40 amp controller.
Have even thought of making a " Lipo for simple minds " webpage and force customers to read it before it ships or the deal is off.
bottom line is that any battery treated incorrectly can result in " issues " .. but lipo just makes it happen faster.
I give you Exibit A :

Matthew is working on a custom battery for a customer that is shaping up to be very nice.
He may or may not do a build thread on it - but either way we will get some pictures here. It is a lot more work than it at first appears but in the end it is worth it. Having a big toaster block out on a rack over the rear wheel sucks..... Having a custom triangle pack fitting in the frame is awesome!
Remember this one Steve at JozzTek did a few years back? Closest thing to a link I can find is this: triangle pack

I am fairly certain that one of the biggest problems with innovation and business today is that everybody is preoccupied with liability, political correctness, safety, and short term profits. F*^k all that.

You may have a different view when the next generation MethTeks has arrived....

I quit my job (and my wife quit her job) after we found she was pregnant - *because* - she was pregnant - and because we are not about to raise our child in fear. People have been raising children for 100,000 years without a 401K and stock portfolio.
I have worked every job from toilet cleaner to busboy, waiter to yard maintenance, tutor to government stooge, now unemployed and self employed. The trappings of cash are not what most think they are... we were making $230k per year and we were totally trapped, totally miserable, locked into the system. Its bullshit friend - a mojo sapping soul trap.
Fear being sued?
That is like fearing the cops or the government.
When I go out to protest Police Violence (in the streets of Oakland California) do you think I fear those men with the sticks, guns, and mace?
You cant be free when you live in fear.... and I intend for me and mine to be free.
Oh, last but not least, my job gives me the freedom to also buy kits from you I guess you are not going to argue that...
