campaign rhetoric to some degree in order to better appeal to the
electorate; almost everyone will show some willingness to move on some
key issues in order to maximize their electoral viability. That’s
standard operating procedure. We know that.
Lithium-ion batteries, often found in laptop computers, differ from
primary lithium batteries, which are often used in cameras. Some newer
AA-size batteries are also primary lithium.
While there is no explosion hazard associated with either kind of
battery, the Federal Aviation Administration has studied fire hazards
associated with both primary and lithium-ion cells, and their extensive
research is publicly available. As
a result of this research, the FAA no longer allows large, palletized
shipments of these batteries to be transported as cargo on passenger
The research also shows that an explosion will not result from
shorting or damaging either lithium-ion or primary lithium batteries.
Both are, however, extremely flammable. Primary lithium batteries
cannot be extinguished with firefighting agents normally carried on
aircraft, whereas lithium-ion batteries are easily extinguished by most
common extinguishing agents, including those carried on board
