So by running over this bag with a vehicle, the spare lithium ion batteries were discovered and the potential threat to the fight averted. Will TSA now start running a vehicle over all baggage before it is loaded into an aircraft? LOL!

Seriously now, I thought even checked bags went through x-ray screening which should detect and alert TSA to such things.

Those batteries are not supposed to be put in to bags because they have a history of catching on fire and exploding.. that is why they must be carry on and never packed in checked luggage.

Reading this account raised a few questions for me... Yes, lithium ion batteries explode for various reasons, usually that explosion is an uncontrolled burning due to an overactive reaction in the cells... was this an explosion, as in "boom", or a flare, as in videos frequently posted to the internet? Did the ground crew hear an explosion or just see smoke? Did TSA inspect the bag manually or via x-ray? If not, why? Surely, one of the ground crew would have posted video by now we're it an explosion... Surely, the folks at Chicago PD would have released pix of their bomb squad in action....

I have seen explosions from these batteries.... they can in right conditions go off with quite a Bang.

Or, perhaps while yes there was a battery in the bag(or not) maybe Ms Gloria Glam had a can of hair spray in the bag.And the ramper crushing the bag released the flamable and explosive hair spray, and her nylons twisting created the spark to detonate her cloud of hair spray

When has it been against TSA rules to pack a charger in checked baggage? Did I miss that one?

I believe they mean a charger that is itself a battery. A simple AC to DC converter has no way of exploding unless plugged in.

The Charger is no problems... They are talking about the Physical Charger, or the Power Pack chargers that have the Battery installed in them.

Would not be allowed.
