Un nou iPhone 4 \”explodeaza\” in Colorado


  In trecut am vorbit in repetate randuri despre terminale iPhone 3GS/4 care au “explodat” atunci cand se aflau la incarcat si astazi am o noua poveste de acest gen pentru voi. De data aceasta o femeie din Colorado a fost victima unui astfel de incident si terminalul ei a inceput sa scoata fum si intr-un final sa crape in timp ce era la incarcat. Bateria dispozitivului pare a fi principalul vinovat si puteti observa din poze ca intreaga parte laterala a iPhone-ului a fost desfacuta de catre bateria care cel mai probabil s-a umflat. Femeia dormea cand telefonul ei se afla la incarcat si a fost trezita din somn de catre sunetul scos de dispozitivul care se afla la aproximativ 35 de centimetri de capul sau.

About 6:30am, she awoke to to a strange smell and “sizzling” and “popping” noises. Then came “not quite an explosion, but an immense crackling,” as the room filled with smoke. “It was an awful, putrid smell, almost like you were ingesting plastic of some kind,” she said in a phone interview. She jumped from bed and used her laptop case to pick up the phone and throw it in the hotel room sink. The hotel smoke alarms failed to work, she said. An electrician found nothing wrong with the room’s power outlet. She said she bought the white iPhone 4 about a year ago at an Apple store in Colorado.

  Terminalul acesta nu este primul care cedeaza atunci cand este pus la incarcat iar femeia sustine ca Apple a refuzat sa recunoasca faptul ca dispozitivul ar avea vreun defect de fabricatie si desigur ca a refuzat sa ii ofere vreo compensatie in schimb. Ea a apelat la cei de la Mashable pentru a prezenta lumii intregi modul in care arata terminalul sau si bine a facut. In ultimele luni au aparut tot felul de incidente de acest gen si exista posibilitatea ca Apple sa fi utilizat niste baterii nu prea bune in unele loturi de terminale iPhone 4.

The woman said she came to Mashable because of Apple’s unwillingness to publicly acknowledge the incident to other iPhone owners. “It’s so important for me to have people know about this,” she said. “They’re giving me the classic corporate runaround, and I understand and respect that. But people knowing about this is the most important thing to me.” “I would have liked to have seen them say they understand this might not be something that affects everyone,” the woman said. “But, because it happened here, [they should] put up a precautionary statement to make people aware that if their battery becomes too hot to be wary.”
