Exploding Lithium Ion Batteries !!

Researchers subjected Lithium-ion batteries to heat and used thermal imaging and non-invasive high speed imaging techniques to observe changes in their internal structure.
Copper inside melted, indicating temperatures of at least 1,085°C (1,985°F), and it caused molten material to stream from the vent

Re: Exploding Lithium Ion Batteries !!

you think that's bad you should see what happens when an aircraft alkaline gel cell suffers thermal runaway and achieves ignition, there was a video of one doing it on some ancient plane that was rigged for remote control flight (purely to test it) they disabled the thermal cutout on a single cell in the 22 cell battery and then flew the plane at 1000ft in circles at 210 knots round the airport until it went pop 3/4 of the plane evaporated in a millisecond, two weeks later a new battery cell was developed and new procedures for testing them were introduced..... much like the first time lithium batteries were confirmed as dodgy they slammed all kinds of restrictions on them ......
but of all the things that will cause damage you should see what happens to a diver that's using the wrong type of digital watch and the face cracks when its below the surface of the water ........
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
