I could be wrong. But would 1800 mA battery power from a phone (I used the battery power from my personal phone as a reference) be powerful enough to detonate ANYTHING?... It's my personal belief that this whole thing about "Terrorists" and planes is horse *$ but lets just say this is happening for a minute.. These would be "Terrorists" are farmers.. and simple folk.. not MacGyver... I doubt MANY of them have ever used a cellphone.. Let alone know the inner workings of them WELL enough to turn one into a "Detonator"...
OR... Could this whole thing be a ploy.. to let "someone" get a phone on board... and "use it" to.. do who knows what with... It's unrealistic... but given the world we live in today, not unlikely.. And I'm sure if some terrible act happens.. there will be a cellphone COMPLETELY untouched and unburned.. probably still in the box... just.. neatly.. planted.. er I mean FOUND.. found at the scene
