Galaxy Note 7 explodes while using Type-C converter
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is making its way to customers around the world. In fact the demand is so high that there are reports of Note 7 getting delayed in multiple countries. Some lucky users are already getting Samsung’s latest offering but among them, the phablet turns out to be nightmare for one Chinese user.
According to user, the Note 7 explodes while charging through micro-USB to USB Type-C converter. It’s not sure whether he used the built in accessory as none of the users around the globe have any problem yet. Nevertheless, we hope this one is definitely not a wide spread issue as it could put some life at danger.
Samsung, Motorola, Google, LeEco, OnePlus and maybe even Apple are now embracing USB-C in various ways, meaning users must buy all-new accessories or deal with various dongles.
The problem is the official converters can be very expensive, leading users towards cheap knock-offs.
It’s still not clear as to how this accident happened, but those purchasing a Galaxy Note 7 in the next few weeks might want to stick to using the official charging solutions. Companies have repeatedly advised people to use official chargers only.
