Warning over exploding batteries
« on: February 04, 2014, 09:47:12 AM »

From cameras to e-readers to laptops, the average passenger aircraft now carries dozens if not hundreds of electronic gadgets on board.
But there are warnings that the lithium batteries found inside them could pose a serious threat to aircraft safety.
The Civil Aviation Authority - which regulates safety - has told the BBC that they are especially concerned about cheap, copycat batteries, which are often bought online.

i suspect that would be a more 'essential' cargo - absence of fuel would surely negate many of the concerns surrounding volatile items such as lithium batteries ;)
