This is also discussed elsewhere in the forum where I gave a link discussing the different chemistry and LiFePO is much less susceptible to self-discharge than the Li-Nickel chemistry in the standard Li-ion batteries used by Tesla. As for the Model S/X I am not worried because they come with 8-year warranties.

New article about Teslas and bricking:

considering that LiFePO is less suceptible, it really should not be an issue for the Karma.
