This paper will describe the tools and considerations in designing a Lithium-Metal-Polymer (LP) battery for safety. Safety is the most important design goal. With technology seeming to change at nearly the speed of light squared, anytime you have mass, particularly in a small space, as Einsteind demonstrated 100 year ago, you have a lot of energy. This paper will focus on the key challenges in making this lithium-based energy storage system safe and the design methodology employed.
