I just finished reading a couple of lengthy post about catastrophic battery failures, and while I realize the chance of occurance is very slim, I do have some concern. I know that at different times, and in different places it has been stated who makes the batteries that actually under the label. I was wondering if any one knows of a place where this data is compiled into one location. It was suggested that buying only US made batteries from an ISO rated manufacturer would result in higher quality (safer) batteries. But with all of the private labels how would one know?

So I guess what I am looking for is a list of batteries by label, who actually makes the battery, where it comes from, and some sort of quality (or safety) value.

Any suggestions?
