It is very easy to intrinically protect low voltage electronics now-a-days.
I agree, although I thought it was Intrins
All of the electronic gear in the Weapons Magazines on the ships is this. E.G. Lighting, speakers etc.
People worry about mobile phones, so why not this? While I think static is a much bigger worry, I have to wonder whether or not these will spark a whole new wave of paranoia (pun wholely intentional.)
In fact it was proven that the use of a mobile phone would not ignite fuel vapour
IIRC someone drove a lorry to a petrol station full to the brim in the trailor with mobile phones. Then they rang all of them at once, can you guess what happened
It is just more of this health and safety cr4p that causes things like this being implemented.
I think this is a good idea, although i have never owned a diesel car, I have filled up the works vehicles which are diesel and not had a problem myself but as has been said. It can be an easy mistake, especially if you have too much on your mind at that moment.
