Tesla CEO Elon Musk wants to help Boeing to fix the batter on the 787 Dreamliner

Article by Christian A., on February 1, 2013

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on his Twitter page that he is offering to assist Boeing to discover a solution to the battery meltdown issue of the 787 Dreamliner. There were several who were skeptic about his message but he later clarified on Twitter that the offer is real. He said that he has been communicating with Mike Sinnett, the 787's chief engineer. No additional details were given.

Musk has gained a lot of experience at Tesla and SpaceX in cooling lithium-ion battery packs. SpaceX seeks to enable human beings to survive on other planets. Musk sent an email to Reuters, stating that none of his production battery packs have ever had a fire.

He also said that his companies, Tesla and SpaceX, use high-capacity lithium-ion battery packs in its rockets and spacecraft, which experience much heavier loads.

They would also have to work from sea level air pressure to vacuum. So far, Boeing hasn’t released a comment about the issue. Majority of the 787 Dreamliners produced so far have stayed grounded because of a variety of mechanical and electrical failures.
