The following sentence is from an article Stanford's aluminum battery charges fully in just one minute.
"But a new type of aluminum-ion battery developed at Stanford University is not only less explode-y than lithium, but also can be built at a fraction of the price and recharges completely in just over a minute."
Below the article, a reader posted the following comment:
""Explode-y"?! Did Andrew write his article with a crayon too? Not to mention that lithium-ion batteries do not explode."
I understood that the commentator did not like use of 'explode-y', and based on his reference to a crayon, he probably considers it a childish usage, but I did not understand why s/he used 'too'.
"Exploed-y" is one instance of childishness. Using a crayon would be another. So, a "too."
