Dr Oz: Overheating Cellphones & Burn Risks
News of exploding Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphones have been scattered across headlines for weeks. Naturally, cellphone users have since been on edge. The cause of the overheating appears to be a defect in the phone’s lithium ion battery, which was also the cause of exploding hover boards months ago. There have also been alleged reports of exploding iPhones, which is why Dr Oz wanted to find out just how safe your cellphone is.
As Dr Oz pointed out, those lithium ion batteries aren’t only used in phones. They’re also commonly found in computers, power tools, and even toys your kids are playing with.
