Lots of laptop batteries are like this; maybe they're too cheap to put
in a pair of leads that will handle surge current from startup, and they
use two on the " + " lead, but I'm no physicist and don't no nothin'
bout no electron flow theory. There may be a thermal circuit breaker in
that package too, feel around
