CNEt reports on why the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phone explodes, “The science behind phone battery fires is actually pretty simple, and fairly well understood. Much like the infamous exploding hoverboards, phones use lithium ion battery packs for their power, and it just so happens that the liquid swimming around inside most lithium ion batteries is highly flammable. If the battery short-circuits, — say, by puncturing the incredibly thin sheet of plastic separating the positive and negative sides of the battery –the puncture point becomes the path of least resistance for electricity to flow.It heats up the (flammable!) liquid electrolyte at that spot. And if the liquid heats up quickly enough, the battery can explode.”
As of October 13, 2016, Samsung officially recalled every single Note 7, including replacement units.
