美國客機要禁止托運鋰電池

在「Lithium-ion batteries banned as cargo on passenger planes」這篇文章裡面提到美國打算在今年四月開始禁止托運含有鋰電池的設備:

Due to the risk of fire, lithium-ion batteries cannot be shipped as cargo on passenger planes.

That's according to a new ban enacted by the U.N.'s International Civil Aviation Organization, which takes effect in April.

如同文章尾提到的兩次貨機載運鋰電池產生的事故,我以為美國早已經全面禁止客機托運了 @_@ (因為台灣與日本早就禁止了?)

Lithium-ion batteries can still be shipped on cargo aircraft. At least two deadly cargo jet crashes have been blamed on fires caused by these batteries. A Boeing 747 crashed in Dubai killing two crew members in 2010. In 2011, an Asiana Airlines 747 crashed off South Korea, also killing two crew members.

這邊提到的兩次貨機的空難分別是「UPS航空6號班機空難」(2010 年) 與「韓亞航空991號班機空難」(2011 年),都是沒有人生還。

Facebook 研究用鋰電池當作 UPS 替代方案

Slashdot 上看到「Facebook Testing Lithium-Ion Batteries For Backup Power」,原報導出自「Facebook gives its server racks a Tesla touch」。

這讓我想到之前 Google 也做過類似的架構,不過是用蓄電池:「Google Finally Declassifies Some Key Server Design Secrets」。

上圖右上邊的那個區塊就是蓄電池。

Facebook 會考慮鋰電池是因為 Telsa 的需求使得價錢往下掉,進而考慮將本來的 UPS 換成鋰電池。
