Notice....here we're talking about batteries exploding. This was not an explosion (I think we can all agree to that, as nobody's dead or maimed :P).

I know I'm a little late to the conversation, but

@Deltac0, according to the article it was a security camera, not a journalist's recording.

@eep357, my old MacBook battery also swelled up (it interfered with trackpad operation). :P But since it was under the 3rd-party seller's warranty I got it replaced.

What about the smoke? I have had several electronics of mine burn (including a nice HDD), and the smoke never looked like that...it was more like weaving smoke streams, not like puffy clouds. And always that burnt electronics smell that drives my family nuts...:rolleyes:...too bad cameras can't pick up smell (although that's a good thing too...) I have this eerie feeling that it was simulated, especially with the way the kid walked out of the car.

The other thing that is obvious to me is the "security camera" movement. It looks like someone was holding a camcorder and trying hard not to move. Real security cameras are stationary and don't move at all as they're screwed in and/or mounted to a solid part of the building. Anyway, that's my take on it... "Trust but verify" is the mindset that I have when it comes to stuff like this...

The video is recorded from a screen, stupid finnish reporters... That was said in the original article.
