Boeing’s Proposed Battery Fix

The Seattle Times has a piece on Boeing’s proposed solution to the 787 Dreamliner battery problems… a containment box. Sounds like the box will be meant to isolate the battery cells both physically and thermally and have gas venting so that in the event of a faulty battery gases are vented and oxygen doesn’t fuel a fire. I’d love to see more details on the fix. I think Boeing is being overly optimistic about gaining FAA approval… it won’t be quick.
