Umnnnhhh.....About Those Lithium Batteries....

Be careful out there, folks.

Dr. Steven Chu’s Department of Energy is pouring money into research on an amazingly wide front, and strides are being made with different electrodes (silver, sulfur, manganese), leading to rapid advances in inorganic chemistry. The challenges are formidable, with overcharged large lithium ion batteries prone to explode or catch on fire, or internally or externally short circuit.

It's probably Bush's fault, but still.........

If it's too good to be true, look for the extension cord.
