I don't know much about the technology behind these batteries so I'm wondering how they still missed the fact they were building a battery that could fail when surely the best minds in the lithium-ion battery business did all the testing they could possibly come up with? I hope the battery issue have already been addressed. I truly hope the battery problems have been fixed. One can only imagine what would happen if something even remotely similar would happen again.

Maybe we can send all of our Lithium planes and cars and dell PC's to North Korea, this way we can kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

Two days ago, I read an article (Discovery News) about an emerging affordable 1,000 mile aluminum-air batteries for cars. They would be a game changer if they really could be deployed. Will Lithium-Ion batteries prove too hard to control - or are we just not yet at the point of having all the necessary process controls on their production?

Same Yuasa brand, same issue with a single cell causing the problem, as was the case in the two Boeing 787 incidents, but a different flavor of Li-Ion chemistry. It will be interesting to see if the focus (finally) goes inside the cells themselves, instead of addressing peripheral, unlikely, easier to protect against, and easier-to-check-and-rule-out causes. As appealing as Li-Ion batteries are, this thermal runaway seems to have been such a common problem that one would think the root causes by now would have been discovered and remedied?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
