Anyone familiar with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner electrical system? After reading this article: Dreamliner's Nightmare and this quote:

I'd assume that what ends up happening in airplanes is similar to cars. The battery provides a limited supply of 12v DC power to the electronics, but since it is capable of providing juice for only a small amount of time, it must constantly be recharged. The alternator serves the purpose of taking mechanical energy from the engine (RPMs) and, using an electric motor, creates DC current, thereby charging the battery- which is why a car with a bad alternator can start, but not run very long (<- I've had this issue 2x on 2 different vehicles).
I'm sure that I got some terminology wrong here, but I think the theory behind it is correct and that airplanes use something very similar.

Poor reporting or not it seems to be a real problem as I think they grounded any US based airlines using it and are trying to do the same over in Japan until its fixed.
Lots of Apple stuff........
