Samsung has long been conducting the investigation of its exploding batteries. The issue now seems to end with a logical conclusion. The company has finally decided to public the findings of the investigation, which is utterly needed for the company’s other products.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, the company would come up with two major battery issues. First, irregularly sized batteries that didn’t fit accurately resulted in overheating and subsequently explosion.
Another problem is some unspecified manufacturing issues that too end up in overheating and explosion. The reports have been reportedly finalised by three quality-control and supply chain analysis firms.
So in short, the entire blame is on the manufacturing partners who created the batteries. So the first under blame is Samsung SDI, which reportedly has been responsible for the first batch of faulty batteries. The second however was Hong Kong’s Amperex Technology Ltd.
Keeping in view such issues, the company aims to build its own set-up for testing and inspections to curb future threats to quality.
Another thing that the company is going to make sure is that Galaxy S8 does not suffer from the same issue by using thermal pipes within the upcoming smartphone to divide the temperature and prevent overheating. The same technology will be used in the series production of LG G6.
Another factor to be considered is to wait for the research of Stanford University that experimented temperature retardant in the ion-batteries.
Samsung must recover from this controversy if it intends to attract the market.
