Here’s why Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 caught fire — and the replacements

You'll be able to learn all about it on iMore's sibling website online, Android Central, however this is the gist:

[The] batteries constructed via Samsung SDI, known as Battery A, had a defect in the most sensible proper of the lithium ion grouping, and in some cells, brought about fire thru repeated rate and discharge. The batteries from Amperex, the Hong Kong-based facility that constructed the batteries for the 2d workforce of Note 7s, known as Battery B, had a defect in the most sensible left portion of the mobile that brought about brief circuits in a small selection of devices. As well as, Samsung says a few of these batteries did not have the important insulation to offer protection to overheating from spreading to the remainder of the battery in a brief circuit situation.

Did not have the essential insulation? Shudder. It is a nightmare situation for any producer and there is a lot to unpack about simply how precisely this used to be allowed to occur, each at the beginning and with the alternative units.

My bet is it would possibly not make a lot if any distinction to Samsung or the Note logo longer term anyway. This is not a decade in the past when even one primary recall may just significantly harm an organization and product. At the present time we do not in point of fact care about that more or less stuff anymore, and we've got proven it time and once more.

Take a look at the complete story and let me know what you assume!
