Re: "not part of his defence strategy"?

I can't claim this as a universal, but it seems to me that every case of a phone or e-cig battery catching fire that I've read, mention seems to be made of the device being in or having been carried in a pants/trouser pocket as opposed to, say, a shirt pocket. I have to wonder whether the majority of problems can be attributed to flexion of the battery, connections, etc., and could be ameliorated by simply carrying potentially explosive electronics in pockets not subjected to regular -- and sometimes extreme - bending.

I dunno... Too simple?
