I once had a battery catch fire; it happened to be just sitting on the studio floor, not subjected to any trauma or heat; one moment all was well, the next it was alight.

The amount of flame & heat was significant. Luckily, it was not attached to a camera or charger and was not near anything flammable. By the way, why do "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing?

Certainly enough impact to make one think.

I'd hate to go down in flames because someone thought it was cool to illegally pack their batteries in the cargo hold of my airplane.

I think I'll waste some time writing a note to the TSA advising them to train their highly skilled staff to this potential deadly problem.

Good shooting and best regards,

Leo
