Phone explosion has been one of the causes of fatal deaths recently and this is because most phone users are not aware of the causes of phone explosion .
Phone explosion can cause a lot of damages to the user and can even lead to death , this is why phone users must be duly educated about factors that can cause phone explosion.
Here are the two major factors that can cause phone explosion:
1. Heat: Excessive heat is very common to the smartphones that are used nowadays and when a phone overheats, there are tendencies that it could explode.
A phone battery can overheat when it is overcharged, this means it has been charged beyond the amount of current that the battery can take.
Excessive heat causes internal short circuit in the battery as it breaks down the battery’s internal cells. ‘Thermal Runaway’ can be caused also when one part of the battery does not cool down in time, this causes breakdown chain reaction that increases heat.
2. Punctured Battery: when a battery is punctured, it can easily cause a phone explosion. A battery can become punctured when a phone user has been careless, allowing the phone to drop incessantly.
3. Expired battery: a battery that is old and expired can easily become swollen and this can make the phone explode during use.
These are three major causes of phone explosion and it is very important for the users of smartphones to be aware of these factors.
