Several aviation experts say this is a serious red flag for battery issues, especially when coupled with news that the Association of Naval Aviation replaced batteries on the equivalent of 40 percent of its fleet (10 batteries out of 24 planes) for unexpectedly low charges — which can be a fire hazard if recharged.
