UPS plane crash under investigation for Li-Poly batteries


This may be the turning point for cheap shipping of Li-Poly batteries.

Apparently this plane had many Li-Pos onboard. None of which were registered as hazardous.

Maybe this will force companies to try and make lipo batteries that don't catch fire.

The article says "The ban affects shipments of non-rechargeable lithium batteries, such as those made by Energizer Holdings Inc. and Procter & Gamble Co.'s Duracell brand."

That's non-rechargeable.

If they are banned then watch how fast the manufacturers correct the problem.

Exactly. We're Americans and when a hole that large opens in a market, it'll get plugged tout suite.
