The Hidden Dangers Of Smartphones
In the past couple of years there have been increased reports of popular
smartphones catching fire and exploding – this have stirred up some panic around
the world (despite these malfunctions being pretty rare).
Why do smartphones catch fire?
Electronic devices in general and computers and smartphones in particular,
require large amounts of power, which also makes them produce a lot of heat.
This cannot be negated, but at a certain point, too much heat can damage the
device or worse – you!
In each electronic device there are tiny, sensitive components. When it comes to
your laptop and smartphone, the components are even smaller, making them even
more sensitive to heat. Abnormal temperatures can melt the plastic insulation
and even some of the more delicate metals, like tin. When this occurs, the
devices malfunction, sometimes dangerously so.
