Air Travelers Warned About Battery Hazard

Airline passengers were recently warned by U.S. transportation officials to be extra careful while transporting batteries for laptop computers, cellphones and other gadgets in the wake of fires aboard aircrafts.

The Washington Post reported the safety advisory was released due to concerns about the potential for battery-related fires. The Air Line Pilots Association, a union that represents 60,000 pilots at 40 airlines, also issued a safety alert to its members advising them how to combat battery fires.

If you're worried about your laptop overheating, I suggest you get an inexpensive portable laptop desk, $29, or a simple bed tray for use at home (snuggling with your laptop is one of the worst things you can do to it!) If you are worried about it getting too hot while traveling make sure you put it to sleep or turn it off before you put it in its bag.
