Toshiba's Super Charge Li-ion batteries: will crush, won't explode

Surely you remember the fear and lawsuits resulting from the 06/07 Lithium-battery fiasco? Who could forget. That's why Toshiba's going out of its way to assure us that their new "Super Li-ion" batteries (SCiBs) revealed yesterday will not result in an equally super meltdown. The new SCiBs feature a high flash point and separator with high heat resistance. As such, they are far less likely to suffer a thermal runaway resulting from a short-circuit. Don't believe us though, check the pneumatic, crush-test from Tosh after the break. We've even thrown in the ol' exploding laptop video for comparison. Ah, those were the days.
