Your gadget batteries endanger planes, says Boeing

Mark 85

I have a problem with that bit also... putting in your carry-on the cabin. I'm not sure which is worse, a fire in the cargo hold or in the cabin. I think most pilots and crew fear fire more than anything else in a airplane. Yes, there's a risk with these batteries, but how severe? And if there's that much of risk, is Boeing still using them in their new airliner?
