Sony warns users its Vaio Fit 11A may burst into flames

Quote:
If you own or have access to a Sony Vaio Fit 11A then you need to stop using it immediately, and stop anyone else using it, too. Sony has shipped over 25,000 units of the Fit 11A to some 52 countries, but it is now warning owners that the hybrid laptop is in danger of catching fire. The reason, as usual, is the battery.

Hi there
What's up with Battery technology these days -- we use more and more devices with them -- if they are a fire hazard - just think of how many mobile phones there would be on a crowded metro - say Paris, London, NY, Tokyo etc.

Wasn't a brand new plane grounded recently because of a possible fire hazard with the batteries.

Doesn't say much for the possible safety of Electric Cars either.

Cheers

They are pushing the envelope in battery development to try and squeeze more power and charge-life out of cells. In the case of electronics they are also trying to shrink them to micro sizes.
Which means that these battery formats are v1.0, virtually prototypes. The consumer is the test dummy.
