LG ensures safety of laptop batties

Posted on Monday, February 18 2008 @ 04:55:09 CET by


A couple of days ago LG released a statement that their laptop batteries are safe and won't blow up under normal conditions. The statement follows an independent investigation into a laptop computer battery explosion a month ago.
"An external shock under an extremely high temperature caused the explosion in January," the company said in a statement Tuesday, citing a test result report by the Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute, a state-sponsored power apparatus test firm.

"Under normal usage conditions, it is not possible for a notebook PC battery to combust," it said.

The company said tests did not reveal what initially caused the high temperature.

South Korean media reported that a laptop belonging to a South Korean journalist burst into flames after smoke began to emerge from it. The LG Electronics notebook computer was fitted with a battery manufactured by its affiliate LG Chem Ltd. There were no injuries.
