It's Lithium batteries again.
Strange how often these things come to light on flights. If your head catches fire on the toilet do you just ignore it?
"Mid-flight slumber cut short by exploding headphones"
Apple are making Bluetooth earpieces, at great expense to the consumer, to cash in of the fact that they are no longer fitting headphone sockets to their devices.
Although I can't see anything in Apple's on-line data about the type of battery in them it will almost certainly be Lithium.
That's a battery in each ear and one in the pocket for the charging pod. I'd be very nervous about that.
To be fair to Apple, they have never had incendiary battery problems, unlike Samsung and Dell to name but two.
