Agree 100%. My only point is that this new information about failing panels does indicate that something in the 787's electrical systems is not behaving as intended, with collateral effects that may not be limited to shorting distribution panels.

I don't buy the argument that the panels themselves (or the batteries, or the chargers) are under-engineered. Today's components may have more silicon than copper but are just as robust. And in any case bench testing will have shown up any obvious shortcomings.

Funny how this information about line failures is leaking out slowly (and not from Boeing). First the battery replacements, now this. What's going to be next?
