Ref If all of that is beginning to sound like an indictment of lithium-ion batteries, then that's a shame.
And whose fault is this? Couldn't be the Media's errored reporting? Could it? The comment last week from a Japanse media report. "The batteries felt lighter than normal" I guess everyone knwos what a Boeing 787 battery weighs and can make such a judgemnet. All Rubbish.
Lithium batteries are already so extensively used in modern products that a person would be hard pressed to indict the technology. Of course, a new organization is likely to sensationalize and make sweeping generalizations for the sake of news.
