Manufacturers really need to switch to LiFePO4 or similar "safe" lithium technology.  Many still use LiPo's which are crazy unstable.

He says he reacted quickly and threw the phone onto a nearby sofa...


Great plan

I didn't read the article.

I was wondering if that couch was soaked with gasoline or such flammable liquid...

In other news Chinese knockoffs of products might not be made to the same standards as the originals.

Probably microfiber cloth. That stuff burns crazy fast, so fast that firemen are worried about it when they have to get in a partially burning home to find people.

Samsung's hottest smartphone got a little too hot for one man in Hong Kong.

The man, known only as Du, says a flaming Samsung Galaxy S4 torched his entire house...


Since this is China, are we sure it wasn't a Sansmug Glaxy?

THAT'S THE NEW SAMSUNG GALAXY S4?

What's the over/under on it being a non-stock, non-samsung approved battery like the S3 that lady tried suing for a few months ago?

In all seriousness, I was curious about the same.

Du claims that while playing the game "Love Machine" he was startled by a loud pop from the phone's battery. He says he reacted quickly and threw the phone onto a nearby sofa, which promptly caught fire.

Good thinking there, Einstein.

Does anyone have any opinions on Anker batteries? I'm looking at a 4400mah one for my S3, since the battery life in it is just the pits. That said, I'll take lousy battery life over an exploding phone anyday.

Playing "Love Machine"! Too much friction?

My wife has that phone. I told her she has to go outside to play "Love Machine" on it from now on.

Don't think I won any points there.

So tired of this.  All lithium ion batteries have a chance of starting a fire.  There is more of a chance if you abuse them in some way.

There are a million ways for your house to catch on fire.  You shiat is flammable.  Use working smoke detectors and the fire extinguisher as necessary.

If this was an iPhone, this would have been called a feature "able to assist you start a fire in dire times when lost in the woods".
