Gulp. After UPS Crash, FAA Focusing on Lithium Laptop Batteries Safety
The FAA has spent the last month investigating and, while they're not certain of anything, they're pointing a suspicious finger at the cargo of lithium how long does it take to get weed out of your system that the airplane was carrying in its cargo hold. In response, the safety organization is suggesting that airlines move future lithium battery packages to the area reserved for so-called Class C cargo, which is safer and more fire resistant. If there are a lot of batteries in the same place and even just one explodes, the resulting fire can heat up the rest of the batteries past their own tipping points. And none of that deals with other places where lithium batteries are found in airplanes-say, in passenger laptops or digital cameras-that the FAA may begin to scrutinize.
