Batteries288 LG Chems, 3.75 Volt, Lithium-Ion
Groups of three cells connect in parallel, and 96 of these groups are in series so that the 288 cells produce 360V with a capacity of 16 kWhr. For safety reasons (Lithium Cobalt/Manganese is very unsafe by nature) and also to prolong battery life, the battery never fully charges or discharges, so it uses only the middle 10 kWhr of battery energy.

Why they didn't use Lithium Iron Phosphate ?
