Actual Video of an Exploding Laptop Battery

We've been hearing stories about exploding laptop batteries for months now, but finally, we actually have video of said explosion in action. This isn't a completely legitimate laptop battery explosion—the folks at PC Pitstop forced a lithium-ion battery into an unstable state—the same state that usually occurred with the Sony laptop battery explosions—and the explosions happened from there.

It's a bit of a long video, but nevertheless it is pretty awesome.

Sweet. Toasty fried legs! Just like Mom used to cook at home. Hopefully the smell of smoke will make you turn off the damn thing.

How many of us are going home right now and making sure our fire detectors are working in the rooms we use our laptops raise your hands?!
