The ones I posted a link to most likely are and I do not want anyone taking any chances...I posted about it here before. There was a big discussion about it at CPF and as I recall Sanyo confirmed it. Whomever is making these spelled electric wrong on the battery! There have been reports of the batteries venting...there have also been reported problems with the BS brand. Only use brand name batteries, and make sure they are not fake. They cost only a little bit more Lithiums are not something to play around with.

Here is the thread I posted about them in.

I agree,
It ended up being why those Dell notebooks and a couple other brands were catching fire; upon investigation it was found out that they (Dell & others or maybe their battery distributors) were trying to reduce costs as much as possible and ended up with some fake/counterfeit 18650 rechargeable lithium-ion cells (used to make pretty much every laptop battery pack). I remember reading about someone who bought a lithium-ion battery pack for their cell phone on E-bay and it actually killed him when his phone exploded in his shirt pocket.

Fake/counterfeit cell are no to mess with and can kill you or burn your house down.
Much worse than a fake laser.

This even has caused LG to put their 2600mAhr 18650 cells on allocation and increase the dealer cost by 8% do to the increased demand in their cell. These are the ones I get and they're from a large US distributor that LG referred me too 18 months ago.

I've been on a waiting list for more cells for the past two months and they just arrived, only thing is I had to buy 1000 of them at once.

Funny thing is that all the laptop vendors were using Sony batteries for their laptops. Dell was the first to initiate the call back, followed by Apple, and then the rest just followed the trail with their tails between their legs.

I have one of those batteries that they did the recalls on. They shipped me the new one and I forgot to send the old one. When they called asking I told them I threw it in the trash. But when I looked, I found it on the side of my bookcase. ;D I'm scared to use it, but am thinking about it... maybe if I enclose it somehow. :-?

It seems the problem was with the seals on the lithium barrels (or whatever you call them). When the batteries get hot, the sealant would let loose and the lithium would be exposed to air. Given the volatile nature of Lithium... once one starts reacting, the covering around the rest would melt and break off as well... and it becomes a domino effect after that... Killing the battery and whatever is near it in the process (including people, priceless data, laptops, phones, furniture... etc)

Thank you Dell <-- Proud owner of many Dell products And will recommend them to anyone.
