With each improvement in possible energy capacity, zinc/carbon through to lithium ion, the effect of overheating by shortcircuit seems to get more violent.

I doubt H&SE have heard of this yet or there would be government health warnings all over many of today's must-have gizmos.

I wandered around Monmouth Show today with a digital camera. Glad I have NiMh batteries in it, imagine the excitement (for others) if I had burst into flames.

And just think for a moment. Lithium Ion batteries are what is in a mobile phone.

I use Li-Poly batteries in my electric radio control model planes and they if incorrectly charged are even more dangerous, heres an example video and notice the time, it seems to have blown up and a while later blows again and again click here=
