There have been quite a few other reports of dell laptop batteries overheating and exploding lately. I agree with everyone who blelieve that the battery was the cause.

Wait a second... I'm typing on a laptop right now! AAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!

*Explodes*

They were Sony batteries. And other companies' computers might need to be recalled as well. I almost posted this here--in the Sony thread on this forum.

Too cheap ones ... - and therefore with an extremely low quality.

Apparently it's being blamed on batteries made by Sony.

Apple just announced that they are recalling over a million laptop batteries.

Apple recall

Apple had a few overheating problems with them too apparently.

Cell Phone On Fire, It's Serious

We don't mean to alarm you, but your cell phone may want to kill you.

How else to explain the story of a Vallejo, Calif., man who suffered second- and third-degree burns over most of his body after the phone in his pocket mysteriously caught fire?

Investigators said that, judging from burn patterns, the cell phone in his right front pants pocket was the only possible source of the fire that awakened 59-year-old Luis Picaso on Saturday.

"There were no matches," said Vallejo Fire Department investigator Bill Tweedy. "There were no lighters. He wasn't smoking. The only source was the phone that was in his pocket. I know he didn't spontaneously combust."

"I don't believe it's a problem with any particular cell phone maker," said Tweedy. "It's a piece of electrical equipment. All electrical equipment can have a malfunction. This is a freak accident. ... It could be any brand of phone that could do that."

Picaso's clothing and furniture choices contributed to the tragedy. He was wearing polyester double-knit slacks and a nylon soccer jersey and reclining in a plastic lawn chair, all exquisitely combustible.
