Consumer Product Safety Commission issued an order back this week on a certain of Galaxy Note 4 batteries. These batteries tend to overheat which postures danger of consumes and fire risks.
At that instant, the incidents that happened with the Galaxy Note 7 a year ago, have been scratched, with the phablet confronting overheating problems, and, as a rule, bursting into flames and putting proprietors in danger.
All things considered, Samsung isn’t out of the woods yet, however this time the Galaxy Note 7 isn’t the guilty party. Rather, it’s the Galaxy Note 4, however it doesn’t seem, by all accounts, to be Samsung’s blame this time around, and this particular review is not quite the same as what we saw a year ago with that specific phablet. During this period, around ten thousand batteries are being reviewed, together with the handsets that have been renovated by AT&T, and are conveyed by FedEx Supply Chain.
As per the official declaration, a portion of the units may have been renovated with “fake” batteries, which, accordingly, can prompt overheating and fire issues.
It doesn’t take much to see the parallels amongst this and a year ago Galaxy Note 7recall. A year ago there were a few reports of Note 7 devices blasting into flares prompting two separate item reviews. The offender: defective batteries.
From that point forward, Samsung has pledged to make more secure batteries and has even initiated an eight-point battery check. This is vital on the grounds that Samsung is set to disclose the Galaxy Note 7 successor, the Galaxy Note 8, on August 23.
A Samsung representative disclosed to CNET that the program was overseen autonomously of Samsung and that the influenced batteries are not bona fide Samsung items. Some of these batteries were resolved to be fake, which may represent the risky irregularities prompting overheating.
In spite of the fact that the first Note 4 is from 2014, the influenced batteries were appropriated between December 2016 and April 2017.
“FedEx Supply Chain has reviewed a group of lithium batteries that were introduced in cell phones,” the organization said in an announcement, “As a portion of the batteries might be fake. We are firmly drawn in with our client to ensure these lithium batteries are securely and immediately returned, and will replace those lithium batteries for free of charge for purchasers.”
AT&T did not quickly react to a demand for input.
Fortunately this review is moderately little. The CPSC estimates that 10,200 batteries are influenced by the review, which is considerably littler than the 3 million reviewed Note 7 devices. Another huge distinction between the reviews is that the Note 4 highlights a removable battery, making it substantially simpler to manage than the inner Note 7 battery.
On the off chance that you got a substitution Note 4 from the AT&T protection program or suspect you are utilizing an influenced device, turn off your telephone instantly. FedEx Supply Chain will give influenced clients a sheltered substitution battery and a container to send in the reviewed ones.
