A succession of problems has plagued Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, but investigators are now most concerned about incidents involving overheating of lithium-ion batteries.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials grounded Boeing's high-tech Dreamliner after battery electrolytes reportedly leaked from a lithium-ion battery onboard an All Nippon Airways flight on Wednesday. The liquid reportedly traveled through an electrical room floor to the outside of the aircraft, leaving burn marks around damaged areas....

....Even with cooling, however, lithium-ion automotive batteries have been known to have problems on rare occasions....

..."The chemistry is edgy," Donald Sadoway of MIT wrote in an email to Design News after the incident.

These batteries are not stable and should not be used in an aircraft.

Hmmmm, first the flaming Fisker Karmas now the overheating Dreamliner. Maybe batteries are best left to flashlights.

Sounds like gerbils on a wheel might be a safer way to provide electricity for the Dreamliner. Of course, it might take a lot of gerbils.

At least the FAA finally did something right and grounded the aircraft before there were fatalities.

Something else to think about when booking a flight, or parking an EV in your garage at night.
