The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been recalled for a while now, and investigators have been looking for the problem ever since. Samsung has had over 300,000 phones and 30,000 batteries tested and believes that they have found the issue with the exploding batteries. They had 2 recalls so there is a statement for “Battery A” and “Battery B.”
“Battery A” was the original battery in Note 7 and Samsung has found that it had issues at the upper corner where they claimed that a negative electrode was deflected in the upper-right corner of the battery, and also that the tip of the negative electrode was incorrectly located in the curve of the battery cell.
“Battery B” had a situation where the battery’s insulation was damaged and another where insulation tape was missing which caused additional battery failures.
You can look at the images below to see how the batteries failed for both Type “A” and “B” batteries.
So what will Samsung do to prevent this from happening again? They have introduced an 8-Point Battery Safety Check system to test battery safety and ensure that this issue doesnt happen again.
Let us know what you think, will you buy next Samsung device?
