in my over zelous search for the hi capacity littlest li-ion battery i found a 2700mah battery..really good price too, a charger was only 5 quid, and so it began..
batteries arrived several decades later than the charger, the charger had evolved into some kind of life form it had had been in transit for so long.. ok ok, a month of waiting.
used the batteries as they seemed full, recharged them, 4 times and later i thought well, theyre getting hot and the charger isnt turning them off, hmmm i have a cunning plan..******* hmm, i'll leave them on for a couple of minutes longer.(like ermm..touching them hot batteries as the indicater to see when they were dun!!! that habbits well and truly obsolete! get a probe!!! lol)
aproxamatly 20 inch's to my right i got uh inf-uh-mashon update in the form of a small nuclea death plume, my ring tone changed immidiently (tinitous change lol) to a long nunggy ningggggggggggggggggggggggg, the flash was very impresive, i havent seen that since i was blowing stuff up as a kid!!
The room filled all but instantly with a sort of stinky cloud of whitened thick toxic smoke stinking the place out, so, i used the only option left to me, running round like a deafened headless chicken i opened windows and doors, the smoke alarm was good though, it worked as stated on the packet! sheeesh then the neighbours gathered to the bellowing smoke exiting out of the windows and spurted muffled noises at me lolol... yeh i was still ringing lol.
all sorted, fans blowing out the windows, i cheked about for small flash fires, and nope all was well, as i sat i notised the pritty little orangey light, flickering its reflection off of the wall behind the pc desk, my knee was getting warm too...dudahhhh panick!!! fire!!!! a couple of cups of random water throwing and all was well.(no where near the power cables..i made sure of that).
the strong sent of blown up battery now amply boosted with the stink of burnt whatever... hmmmm i was not amused.
later i probed about at the carger, slightly charred but i think it'd still work tbh, i couldnt find eather of the two batteries untill later, i first found the 'husk' of one, one room away, followed by several days later the other battery under a unit in the same room.
off course i was politly in the act of contacting peoples about chargers and batteries, to politly 'enquire' as to what why and when will they die sort of thing when i read the rest of the battery advert, the 2700mah battery, that was a disposable.. oops!!!
so be carefull out there peeps, read it all lol. (the mension of disposable was in there, at the end in a sort of hidden dont read me section!)
