Dell banned from Korea Air - they don't like exploding batteries then.




South Korea's largest airline has banned some battery-powered laptops from its flights over fears they may start fires, according to a report.

Korean Air has barred all Dell laptops and some Apple models being used after they were subject to a battery recall.


Passengers will still be able to use the machines if they are run from the in-seat power supply and the batteries are removed, Associated Press said.


Dell last month recalled 4.1 million lithium-ion batteries made by Sony.


Apple followed suit, saying 1.8 million of its Sony-made Powerbook batteries may have been affected.
