| | So my 9800 Torch almost set me on fire...

Earlier that day, I noticed that the battery on my torch was dying really fast. I could have sworn I had at least 50% a few minutes ago... but now its 5%? Must be some power-intensive app I have running.
Then later I go to take the phone out of my pocket and I get a very nasty burn on my hand. There is a metal disc I have fixed to the back of the blackberry to attach a cable-less charging pad, so I probably wouldn't have gotten burned if it weren't for that, but still. My F-S1 battery had shorted, and gotten very very hot.
There was no thermal fuse or short-circuit-prevention tech in the battery at all. Thermal fuses aren't big or expensive, and my phone could have easily detected that something was wrong when it used up about 4 watts in 2 minutes. Whats the deal, RIM?
