Having pulled one of the aluminium & plastic battery packs apart (& put it back together), I suspect that one of the soldered wires has come loose - the soldering in mine was pretty ordinary, even by my standards. It is probably easily repairable, but would mean taking the rubber coating off - at $38 per can for plasticdip to recover the battery, it doesn't seem worth the effort.

Actually Marty if you look at the reviews & discussions, you will see that while the pictures are of the old design, what is being shipped is the rubber coated battery. Same same inside.
Whilst there have been reports of dead batteries, I haven't heard of any reports of the more, ahem, attention grabbing, vents with flames - at least in the last 12 months, so it seems as if they have improved that aspect of their quality since Geoman's recall. Not to say it won't happen again of course, but for now, ok.
