The burnt blue casing that contained a total of 8 battery cells from the Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner that caught fire at Logan International Airport in Boston on Jan. 7, is seen on a cart at the National Transportation Safety Baord laboratory in Washington, as investigators continue their investigation Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013. The battery that caught fire in Boston shows evidence of short-circuiting and a chemical reaction known as "thermal runaway," in which an increase in temperature causes progressively hotter temperatures, federal accident investigators said. However, it's not clear to investigators which came first, the short-circuiting or the thermal runaway. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)
