Xiaomi investigates cause of Mi Max and Mi 4C explosion
On September 5 in Xian, a 6.4-inch Xiaomi Mi Max exploded while the user was charging the phones, CNA reported. Another case was reported on September 9, when a user, who claimed that he bought the handset from Xiaomi’s official website, experienced three-degree burns from a Xiaomi Mi 4C explosion.
As the investigation continues, Xiaomi has ‘insisted’ two cases to be accidents, reported Digit Times, a China-based technology website. According to DigiTimes, Xiaomi has made compensation to the victims accordingly.
While investigating, Samsung found a production error that pushed together negative and positive poles within battery cells, which caused the units to explode. And now the company is planning to switch to China’s ATL for supplying batteries, which is Apple’s main supplier for iPhone batteries.
