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"

:confused:
In keeping as close to the original title, I've added a comma. :)

Just the result of more misinformation being spewed by the press. It was on 6:00/11:00 News, in various newspapers and blogs and we read it on the internet! :rolleyes:

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." :bangwall:
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 . . .
