Japan probe finds 787 battery not overcharged
TOKYO (AP) -- Japan's transport safety agency says a lithium ion battery on a Boeing 787 that overheated during an All Nippon Airways flight earlier this month, prompting an emergency landing, was not overcharged.
Japan Transport Safety Board chairman Norihiro Goto told reporters Wednesday the flight's data recorder showed the battery was not overcharged.
That contradicts an earlier finding by the agency as it investigates with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.
Investigators from both sides are probing the maker of the battery, GS Yuasa, and are examining it using CAT scans at a facility of Japan's aerospace agency.
U.S. investigators also said that they found no evidence of overcharging in a battery that ignited on a Japan Airlines Boeing 787 as it sat on the tarmac in Boston's airport.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An Oklahoma City-based travel store chain is donating $3 million to disaster relief funds after deadly tornados ripped through parts of Oklahoma.
The donation from Love's Travel Stops comes after a tornado struck the community of Moore on Monday and killed 24 people. Another tornado on Sunday left two people dead in Shawnee.
The first $1 million will go to the OK Strong Relief Fund that Gov. Mary Fallin established to meet the long-term needs of victims in partnership with the United Way of Central Oklahoma.
Another $500,000 will go to Catholic Charities. The remaining $1.5 million will fund a benefit event to honor those affected by the storm.
Love's Travel Stops operates 63 stores in Oklahoma, including several in close proximity to the destruction path.
