Expert: ‘Get what you pay for’ with lithium ion batteries

Charleston, S.C. (WCIV) — Lithium-ion batteries are found in most laptops, no matter which company makes it.

“According to what I’ve read, they tend to last a little longer and they tend to eliminate what used to be called the memory effect,” said Chris Hughes, the owner of Mount Pleasant Computer Center.

He said in the past, laptop companies like HP, Compaq and Dell have re-called the lithium batteries, due to an X-factor.

“X is usually something like: they can overheat, they can explode. A lot of times they don’t go into detail as to specifically why that is going to occur,” said Hughes.

A search for lithium batteries on YouTube reveals multiple videos detailing the dangers of fires caused by laptop batteries.
