Although laptop batteries aren't catching fire nearly as frequently lately, every now and again one still seems to spark off -- but LG wants you to know that its batteries are safe. The Korean mega-conglomerate said that it's wrapped up an investigation into reports that surfaced last month about an LG-sourced battery exploding in a reporter's laptop, and that it was apparently a freak accident. According to LG, "Under normal conditions, it is not possible for a notebook PC battery to combust." Uh, sure it's not, guys -- you keep telling yourselves that, and we'll keep blogging in these goggles and red Nomex capes. Deal?
