Laptop Battery Fire

PC Pit Stop has made a standard laptop battery catch on fire. The fire is quite a bit larger than I would have expected.

“We intentionally created conditions in which the Li-ON battery pack would explode inside a generic portable. The results are dramatic. There are numerous conditions where these fires can occur in real life. Faulty battery packs (driving the recalls), faulty protection circuits inside the PC, exposure to excessive heat, and blunt force are some of the major ways that this could happen to you.”
