But this is the really sad commentary;
"Florida fire officials concluded on Tuesday that the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive's battery charger caused the blaze."Unfortunately a rush to judgement placing blame on the smart (car battery charger) sells more newspapers than a retraction stating the facts - a homeowner installed battery trickle charger apparently caused a devastating fire . . .

I think the thread title is misleading.
Was it a smart charger? I've never heard of Daimler-Benz smart-branded chargers. So if these do not exist, the article should not be titled
"smart charger apparent cause..."
Instead, a more suitable title might be "battery charger apparent cause of FL house fire, smart ForTwo burned"

That Smart Electric-Car Fire? Never Mind; It's Not Electric At All
This one looks the same but goes to the page.
PS - much ado about nothing - again. Another bogus report of an electric car burning down a house.

That's why I put the "ED" in parenthesis and with a question mark in the thread's title...
Do you think we need a source for this followup?
And now changed it to (not ED!)...
