Well, that was bit more drama than I really wanted... a lithium battery I was recharging just blew up, sending burning debri flying and filling the room with acrid smoke.

Thankfully no real damage, and no harm done. Just scared the heck out of everyone.

Need a new battery charger now though.

I'm very glad no one was hurt, and nothing irreplaceable was damaged! What kind of lithium battery was it?

Trustfire, [in retrospect, that should have been a warning] lithium 3.7volt battery, a 14500 size [looks like a AA]

There are some "lithium" batteries that are not rechargeable, and were never meant to be. (The metal lithium enters into quite a few, um, interesting chemical reactions!)

The manufacturer chose a rather unusual way of indicating that the battery had reached the limit of how many recharging cycles it could tolerate...
