Questor Posted September 12, 2016 Share Posted September 12, 2016 Hello All. We've been having lots of various discussions about batteries, and the possibility of combustion while charging. Well it seems now that Samsung is having an issue with their new Note 7 phones. There have been 35 cases of the phones caught fire while charging, and Samsung has issued a recall of millions of units. Additionally these new phones with large batteries have been banned from flights (or users have been told not top use them on flights) due to the potential fire hazard. Samsung says that they have been buying batteries from two sources, and one of them had been supplying defective batteries. Perhaps this will now focus some attention on the production of batteries, and their overall quality. Additionally, perhaps this will lead to a certification of batteries, and increased quality, and MAYBE with these new quality standards / certifications, we will be allowed to bring our wheels on airplanes... Maybe... Discuss? Q~ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
