Qantas A388 near Honolulu on May 21st 2014, personal electronic device's battery overheats
Last Update: July 28, 2014 / 16:24:37 GMT/Zulu time
The ATSB reported on Jul 28th 2014, that the investigation into the occurrence has been discontinued after the investigation established, that the battery, a non-rechargeable Lithium battery, was within the specifications permitted for carry on items and the crew reacted according to documented procedures, which proved effective. The ATSB reasoned: "Given that the ATSB’s records show that this type of battery failure is quite uncommon and both the crew’s actions and documented procedures were effective in managing the small risks involved, there would be limited safety benefit in investigating the matter further, and as such, the ATSB investigation has been discontinued."
