Open source nickel iron battery ideas

The ideas have been published under GPL 3 to prevent what happened with lithium iron phosphate batteries. The electric car and hybrids have been seriously hindered by patents on batteries.

The idea to collect electrolysis gases from overcharging looks like a great idea. Electricity for home/business and gas for heating/cooking/transportation.
