Samsung Galaxy Explosion

You all have probably heard about the Samsung phones exploding, but do any of you know why?

Since the first explosions, Samsung has issued a total recall of the Note 7, but that did not solve the problem. Since the recall was issued, the number of fires has quadrupled, and that's not counting the replacements sent by Samsung. Apparently, the replacements for the Note 7 have the same problem as the originals! Don’t you think that they should have tested the phones before releasing them to the general public?

Well of course they did. Every phone company has to test their phone products before it's released. Samsung just wasn't expecting this. Though, it's not the first incident of phones exploding from other companies either.

The fault has been put down to a problem with the batteries, which caused the phone to overheat and in some cases burst into flames and leak dangerous chemicals. It is possible the explosion cases could have been caused by malfunctioning batteries, an issue which can be caused by using cheap charging cables, but no one has officially found the source of the problem. Replacing your charger cable with an alternative charger can cause damage to your phone’s battery, as often, the electricity supply they provide is unstable. It’s a problem you won’t be able to notice until it’s too late and your phone has overheated, so phone manufacturers recommend only using the charger that came in the box, or a reputable replacement.
