Lithium-Ion Laptop Battery Explosion Demonstration (Video)

laptop batteryAfter the Sony battery fiasco we all heard about in recent months, I'm sure a few of you wondered what a laptop battery explosion would look like. Here's a small video that should satisfy your curiosity.

We intentionally created conditions in which the Li-ON battery pack would explode inside a generic portable. The results are dramatic. There are numerous conditions where these fires can occur in real life. Faulty battery packs (driving the recalls), faulty protection circuits inside the PC, exposure to excessive heat, and blunt force are some of the major ways that this could happen to you.


  • The play-by-play is hilarious!
    Thanks for stating the obvious Mister!!

  • Not another laptop batteries exploding. Seems like there are more reasons not to buy laptops.
