    either way that is still a shit product. if it were me i would definitely think about getting a lawyer and suing the shit out of keith. that should have had a default circut cut off in the event the wrong battery was present during charging.

    if it were made here in the states it would have been tested for just that possibility. before it would ever get a UL tag.

    Looks like his face got picked up with the egg bits. Oh well I’m sure he came with two.

    I think I can get a little more out of him with some rubbing compound.

    Could always ask FT and see if they happen to have some extra faces.

    As for everything else, i'm stunned. From guessing that Cyclonus was at most a couple feet away from the blast, that is AWESOME that he only seems to have some soot and some scratches, but will live to tell the tale like nothing happened, otherwise.

    Now you've got me hoping even more for a Quietus reissue, haha.

    First off, glad to hear that everybody is ok.

    I'm not sure you can blame the packaging language though while you freely admit that you didn't pay attention when you were ordering them.

    You should assume that batteries are NOT rechargeable unless they are clearly and specifically stated to be.

    Very glad you are okay. Thank god you werent more seriously hurt.

    “Don’t play with that egg young man! You could blast your eye out!”

    Im also glad to learn that it was a battery/user error. As much fun as this would be to pin on XTB, they aren’t to blame. I dont know much about batteries, so I’ll head on over to Youtube, but at least we can assume this is truly a one time event.

    Again, very glad you are okay and nothing more serious happened. Thanks for sharing -Youve at least taught me a few things... when in doubt, FT will protect you from projectiles!

    Merry Christmas all!

    My $30 earthrise Quint hasn't exploded yet, but I got Quietus there just in case it explodes like the $175 Egg.

    as i have found out myself when using a properly tested british charger with the wrong duracell batteries put in it's not always the case that a fuse will help with non chargable batteries my charger kept going until the wrongly put in batteries started to melt and would have caught fire if i had not noticed or had put them on charge overnight or if i had gone out ...if they had been lithium i'm betting they probably would have exploded like they did in the egg .. got to be so carefull not to charge non chargable batteries regardless if the device has a breaker/fuse which most electical devices do there is a high chance that won't help

    I knew that non chargeable batteries can melt if charged, but I didn't know that they can explode like that. Is it something about the litium?
    Sorry that this happened to you. I will be very careful after seeing this.

    You know what annoys me? When people throw away my rechargable batteries when they're empty.

    YOUR EYES! USE THEM!

    Anyway because Friendross is OK and no (real) harm done, this story is magnificent. Shoulda filmed the egg explosion in slow motion. Instant Youtube hit.

    But it still looks like... that. Waste of $30 if it looks like a happy meal toy.

    Glad you are suprisingly okay with all that crazy damage! May want to put an addendum to your initial post that you ended up using the nonrechargeable battery though. Feels like it'll feed into the hate that XTB/KFC is getting even if they deserve some of it.
