From the article: “Investigations have centred on the plane’s lithium-ion battery unit. U.S., Japanese and Boeing representatives have
this week been at the Kyoto headquarters of GS Yuasa Corp, which makes batteries for the 787.”

All well and good for aircraft which have not yet suffered fires.

For those which have, the ivestigation should include all areas of the airframe which were penetrated by smoke from the fires, because lithium-ion smoke is extremely corrosive.
