The battery that caught fire on a Japan Airlines Boeing (BA) 787 in Boston earlier this month "did not exceed its designed voltage," the The National Transportation Safety Board says. That appears to be in contrast to the battery that malfunctioned on an ANA Dreamliner a week later, which may have been overcharged. The differing chain of events could complicate the attempts to understand the root cause of the problems and lengthen the time it takes to renew 787 flights.
