Re: Bad batteries? Why would a company replace a battery that, as far as they know is perfectly good, just because the manufacturer went under? If your shoe company went bankrupt would you just go out and by new shoes?
Re: Bad batteries?
said by Heterman:Bull crap. Anyone with a brain, who has read the warnings on a car battery, and knows a little about electronics knows that a battery that is charging emits HYDROGEN GAS. Hydrogen gas is HIGHLY explosive. Something in that cabinet had to spark, causing the hydrogen gas to explode. The REAL questions are A) what caused the spark, and B) why in the hell are the batteries in the same cabinet as the damn electrical equipment? Those batteries should have been stored in the power distribution box, away from the telephone crap. I myself would consider the fact that some jack ass may have a telephone that could have shorted out perhaps. Think about it, these boxes serve customers who are not very far from the box at all. Less length on the loop means greater possiblity of a short in someones loop to this DSLAM. Oh well, thats just my take on the situation. Nice to see the melted fiber line. This is a perfect example of me taking up for AT&T's decision to continue to use this bankrupt companies batteries, and to continue installing their VRAD based service for those of you that thing I only defend Comcast because I'm a "fanboy".
Because Sir, safety has never been first. Ever.
Sorry to hear that this kind of issue happened. Hopefully, going forward there will be no more incidents like this one.

Re: A battery doesn't "just blow up"- I am talking about the news report about the Dell Batteries, not the VRAD. Note the post and replies...all sub to the Tell that to Dell and Sony post. The Vrad batteries seem to have exploded, the Dell and Sony Bats did not.

Re: A battery doesn't "just blow up"- you sound like an insurance adjuster. To the person who had something blow up they could give a shit as to the mechanics....the result is something FUCKING BLEW UP!

Re: A battery doesn't "just blow up"- I never stated that they didn't blow up- just that there had to be other things involved-and on a personal note - is it really necessary to curse to get your point across?

co-location Hmm.. you might not want to build a bridge, or for that matter a daycare center within pitching distance of at&t's VRAD's..
What was that slogan again?
Your world, delivered?, What? by IED?!
AT&T redefines the IED:
Improvised Explosive DSL!
Impressive Exploding Data
Iraqi Expatriated Downgrade
I have more, but I'll give everyone a chance to tear AT&T a new one for this fiasco..
