A Japan Airlines Boeing 787 flight from Helsinki to Tokyo experienced a problem with its lithium-ion battery, just months after the Dreamliner fleet was cleared for flight after battery problem grounded it in January.

During flight 414 on 10 November a cockpit indicator showed one of the two batteries connected to the plane’s auxiliary power unit was in trouble. Following an inspection that showed no fault with the battery and the voltage and electrical current were within normal range, the flight continued.
