Maybe these incidents can lead you to take a precautionary measure and thus prevent your mobile phone battery from blasting. Hence, today GizBot has come up with a few methods that will make sure that your device keeps calm and doesn't explode. Take a look at the slider below:
Throw away those fake batteries that you bought just to save some money. Your life is costlier! Fake batteries may cost less, but they are one of the prime reasons for mobile dysfunctions and blasts.
Now that you've done that throw away that fake charger too. (If you have one) These fake chargers, oil your battery by charging it in a most unlikely way.
Always remember to use the battery and charger -- same as the brand of the mobile phone. Stop borrowing chargers from friends when you're on a trip, carry your own.
An improper voltage supply to the battery can overheat it, thereby lead to an explosion. Avoid extended charging of your phone. Overcharging is not helpful in any way. Also, leaving your phone on charge overnight is the most undesirable thing to do. Avoid doing that.
Not Talking While Charging
Quit talking on the phone while charging it. You should adhere by it if you do want to land up in serious trouble.
Keep Water Away
Do not charge a wet phone. Water and electricity combined, are not a good friend of your phone.
Get Rid of Damaged Batteries
Replace your battery if it is damaged even a bit. Sometimes people ignore it which later leads to a catastrophe. (Especially if your battery has swollen up from the back.)
Avoid Extreme Temperatures
Do not keep your phone in environments where it has to face extremes of temperatures. Printed circuit boards are sensitive to temperature.
Follow the above steps to avoid any such accidents.
Batteries of mobile phones
The science behind Lithium Iron batteries
The batteries of mobile phones are made of Lithium Iron. These batteries suffer from a little problem that called "thermal runaway" whereby excess heat promotes even more excess heat which leads to the disaster. Because of this, they are equipped with a system that protects against overcharging and prevents hazardous reactions of the chemicals contained within. It is quite often said that even the inexpensive batteries produced by unknown companies are just as reliable as the original.
So follow these steps and stay safe!
