Clueless on the Word 5 thing but Acorn and I were just talking about laptop batteries. Read that thread. From my taking them apart, it's pretty clear the good ones are all designed that same way. It also makes it clear why they keep recalling battery packs. Appears all these babies get super hot at the end of charging. Makes sense, energy ends up as heat instead of chemical energy.
