A young child was recently killed after using a smartphone while it was charging, which led to the device exploding. Here’s how you can prevent the same thing from happening to you and your smartphone. Smartphone batteries are designed to withstand the wear and tear of daily life, with several protections built in to prevent over-charging, overheating and other untoward events. However, every now and then, we hear about incidents where smartphone batteries have exploded or caught fire, sometimes harming owners and their family members in the process.
Just a couple of days ago, Live Hindustan reported that a child in Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh died after a mobile phone exploded. The incident that reportedly took place when the child tried to charge the battery, also left a large part of the child’s face damaged, according to the report.
