Laptop Explosions

We have heard of mobile phone battery problems and explosions.
Courtesy of Zoli saw this about Laptops exploding.The The Inquirer reports that laptop computer( said to be a DELL make) suddenly exploded into flames, in what could have been a deadly accident. The reporter adds, "The damn thing was on fire and produced several explosions for more than five minutes". Look at the pictures - the fire is indeed intense, considering that it happened from a device.
This is not the first time such incidents get reported – some time back, it was reported that a 15 yr old girl suffered second-degree burns to her hands and thighs after her laptop exploded . Battery pack explosion and disintegration was seen as the reason for the incident. The advise when an explosion happens is to just stay away. More than that his warning something else that needs to be taken seriously -“is only a matter of time until such an incident breaks out on a plane”. This needs thorough investigation and we need to have reliable solutions. Scary thoughts – in accidents of new kinds generally the secondary /collateral damages can be equally or more deadly than the primary damage.. Are we all living life on chance!!
