Apple later announced that they will not offer any compensation to the woman whose face, hair and hand were burned when her headphones exploded somewhere this year.
The manufacturing company Apple claimed that the situation is entirely the fault of the woman because she used a battery which was not manufactured by apple. “Our investigation indicated the issue was caused by a third-party battery,” they said this in a statement on Friday.
But the woman is saying that since there is no requirement specification on what brand of battery to use, the company should compensate her and take some responsibility for the situation at hand. She says she bought the headphones duty-free in 2014 and the AAA batteries in Australia.
“The headphones don’t work without batteries, yet nowhere on the headphones – or their packaging – did it specify which brand of batteries should be used,” – the Australian anonymous woman.
She claimed that she was awakened by an explosion and burning heat all over her face when she was asleep on a flight from Beijing to Melbourne.
