Re: Still, Sal: what's the upside?

Lithium ion batteries are susceptible to damage from impact, and this can result in a heat build-up that can cause the battery to melt and potentially start a fire.

I wonder if Fuji's warranty would cover damage caused by a battery that had been inserted after it had been dropped and damaged? Wouldn't that fall under some sort of clause that defined normal usage parameters and misuse of equipment?

I know my camera isn't covered under warranty for damage caused by my dropping it. I can't see why Fuji would be liable for damage caused by a battery that I dropped and damaged.
