gasco logoNews reaches us via the GASCo [December bulletin] about a serious incident when using a lithium battery in a head torch and the resultant explosion.

Reported from an article in the RAF magazine Air Clues Recently a serviceman on ops with a fading alkaline battery in his head torch could find only a lithium equivalent to hand and used that. He was lucky to get away with only minor injuries when the head torch exploded.

 A wise warning to others we thought!
