Just shows you that electronic devices/cars,etc... are not designed to survive, they are designed to fail (and hopefully gracefully).
Not a bad gig... Sell a product for $2,000. then every 3-4 years make another$750 just to replace an $8 battery (probably$1 their cost).. and on and on...

This Agilent unit usually just throws up an error code about lost memory but due to the battery rupturing (thankfully it didn't catch on fire like other lithium batteries) this one just kept rebooting... Ruptured battery still measured 1.8V too.
