    Throw away your laptops then lads, what do you think they run on?
    I think there is a difference between 18650 protected and unprotected batteries.

    Hence cheap Chinese 18650s.

    Oh and panasonics blew up in a couple of 787 dreamliners. Lithium is the second most unstable element, it's dangerous, just gotta be aware of the risks.

    Didn't blow up but caught on fire didn't they? Suffered from thermal runaway during charging and over heated. Lack of good quality control during cell manufacturing, now Boeing has there own boys in Japan during the build and a new massive steel case contains them in the aircraft.
