07:40 EDTEADSY, LMT, ALNPY, BABatteries used in Dreamliners raised concerns before, WSJ reports
Batteries like those related to Boeing's (BA) 787 Dreamliner have raised growing concerns with air-safety regulators in recent years, reports the Wall Street Journal. But It remains unclear whether those batteries, produced by Japan's GS Yuasa Co., caused the problems on two Dreamliners operated by All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines. Other factors could have contributed to the incidents, say industry officials. The power cells posed a risk because they can be highly flammable. Lithium batteries are vulnerable to overheating if overcharged, or if discharged too rapidly, and overheated or damaged batteries can catch fire. They burn at extremely high temperatures, may emit flammable vapors, flames or sparks, and can even explode, the Journal reports. Also, lithium batteries are being used more widely in aircraft. The U.S. military's new F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter jet uses ones produced by a unit of French battery maker Saft Groupe. No safety incidents have been publicly reported. Lockheed Martin (LMT) builds the fighter. Airbus (EADSY) uses small lithium batteries for emergency power on its two-deck A380 superjumbo.The company plans to use bigger lithium batteries on its new A350 model, but those cells still will be smaller than those aboard the Dreamliner. What's unusual about the Dreamliner is that it relies on electric power for most of its functions. Reference Link
