Nokia has temporarily halted sales of the Lumia 2520 due to faulty charger

This is the second device I've seen lately with this issue. HP released a chromebook with a faulty charger just a few months ago.

Seems strange that after all this time using the same battery technology, these companies are still screwing it up.

 

On a somewhat related note, did anyone see the video of the guy smashing up the galaxy s5 with a hammer and then the battery exploded? Makes me wonder if I really want to carry around the phone in my pocket anymore. :P

Do you carry swinging hammers in your pockets often?

Damn, that is a violent, chemical reaction.

Admittedly initiated by taking the battery into non-normal conditions - but still - there's some chemicals at work in that thing of very different energy levels to cause that sort of incident.

 

I hate to think what he breathed in at the end to make him cough !

No, but I do carry around spare batteries for my S3 in my pocket all the time. I also keep one in my car and in my backpack.

I never considered that they could explode. What if I sat on it and it exploded? :P
