Saw this on slashdot.

Can't get to the linked video just now as the site has been Slashdotted.

You have right.

But, when a cheap charger gone bad, the result can be the same with li-ion.

Two people in my class were charged under the Explosives Act in 1976. They were playing with home-made explosive devices, and got a bit carried away one day, managing to kill the power to about 500 houses around the substation that did not appreciate a 2kg explosive device detonating close to it.

I don't think any generation hasn't had those - and if you look around it really isn't hard to make things blow up. This was long before there was an Internet to tell you how to make stuff blow up. 

 

In my days as a chemist, we were always finding new ways to accelerate small pieces of glassware past the speed of sound, though all of them were unintentional. Any chemist who hasn't had an explosion or two just isn't trying.
