    This is not going to help our case if true??

    PHP Code:
    Four days after thathe also confirmed press reports that the plane was carrying some small lithium-ion batteries but stressed they were transported according to International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAOrules.

    Professor Middleton said a severe fire caused by lithium-ion batteries would require “gallons of fluid to put it out”but said if this was the cause of the aircraft’s disappearance it would be unlikely it could have flown all the way to the southern Indian Ocean

    I thought exactly the same thing when I read that Robray. Wondered if it was a crate of egos! Are egos lithium batteries?

    But aren't all phone and PC batteries lithium batteries too? There must be thousands of flights carrying this kind of cargo?

    Sorry to sound like a complete twit.

    It's well known at Fasttech that every other carrier refused li-ion batteries. Fasttech started using malaysia post because it was the only carrier that would ship li-ion batteries.

    That said, the plane was going TO china, where li-ions are made, so there's no reason why that plane would have a large shipment of li-ions going TO China

    Egos and most other portable electronic use lithium batteries, most airlines are happy with that though, as they are contained. Even FT has no problem airmailing them through singapore post/air. It's loose battery cells that can react together that every air line banned, except malaysia air.
