Boeing has found a way to fix its battery problems with the grounded 787, Reuters reports.

A company source said the fix involves increasing the space between cells of the lithium ion batteries in order to prevent overheating.

All 50 787’s that were in service were grounded last month after several incidents involving the batteries.
