Not sure if any insurer will cover used lithium batteries of unknown provenance in a multi-ton cube.

They are almost never from "unknown" provenance. e.g. used Tesla car batteries, you know everything about them already (tech specs, years in operation, and number of charges).

ex-automotive-service might be the worst case provenances.

Would make sense if Tesla kept a life-time score of subjected G-forces and vibration for the pack so they could bin salvaged cells.

Applications are open for YC Winter 2020
