Yes, nikon got it wrong "The battery pack can experience a short circuit causing it to overheat"

Yes, the Asia manufacturer can get it wrong too.

If I had this paranoia about everything, I would not drive, fly, carry ipod with me...

If you paid $1000 for your body buy Nikon accessories. Many did not spend that much on body, lens, and all accessories combined.
