Self-ignition of smartphones is an issue that turned out to be very troublesome for the largest smartphone manufacturer. Will it be the same in the case of the ever-accelerating Xiaomi?
I'm going to bet that every next information about the self-ignition of a smartphone arouses huge panic at Samsung's headquarters. As we remember perfectly, the problems with the exploding batteries caused the spectacular failure of the Galaxy Note 7 model, and the Koreans assured that taking care of the right quality of smartphones is now a priority. And in fact, although the problem has not been completely eliminated, it has been significantly reduced, which is good. Now, however, there are small reasons for the anxiety of another big player who is storming the popularity peaks with great strength – we're talking about Xiaomi.
Hot potato Xiaomi – self-ignition Mi A1
We learned about the self-ignition Xiaomi Mi A1, and so the first smartphone of this company equipped with pure Android . Of course, this is not the first time the smartphone of this company is in flames, because we could see a similar case last year on the example of the Redmi Note 4 model, but this accident is different from the one mentioned in a significant way. Xiaomi Mi A1 ignited spontaneously, in addition to a very dangerous situation for the user – the smartphone lay on the bedside table in a very short distance from the sleeping person. The battery has exploded, but fortunately the owner of this copy has not done anything, mainly due to the fact that he put on a protective case that minimized the effects of the explosion . The equipment itself was quite badly damaged, and the back of the device was almost cooked, so the temperature had to be really high.Of course, the reasons behind this accident can be the whole mass – it could be both a faulty battery and a damaged charger, because the phone was connected to charge during the night. It may be that the protection against excessive overloading of the cell has failed – the fact is that the equipment should not be too exploited, because its user had it for only 8 months.
Who is guilty? We'll find out quite quickly
Anyway, before the Xiaomi team another difficult puzzle to solve. Determining the causes of auto-ignition should hardly belong to difficult ones, but the question remains open – is it a mistake coming directly from the manufacturer, or is it the fault of external factors? At the moment, everything points to design errors – even in the face of a faulty charger should protect mechanisms. And this is another confirmation that the protective case can protect us not only from scratching the smart case of the smartphone. source: gizmochin
