#ExplosiveMonday: What happens when the Ulefone Power battery is sawed


Ulefone Power Saw

Despite it only being a Monday (the lowliest of all low days), it seems that it’s quite an eventful (read: explosive) day. We first read about how a Xiaomi Mi 4c allegedly damaged the backsides of a user, then came across an incident involving a 6 year-old kid and a Note 7 that exploded.

Before you call it a day, go through another story that has to do with burning phones; Ulefone just decided to ride the wave and sawed through a Ulefone Power just to see what happens.

The Ulefone Power’s battery smokes but it doesn’t explode, it appears.

As you can see from the video,¬†after the Ulefone Power gets sawed¬†through,¬†it begins to release¬†a thick white smoke which we’ve rarely seen before on smartphones, maybe due to the large capacity battery?

The battery, which still¬†produced a huge amount of heat, totally melted the plastic back cover (image below) but it didn’t explode, thus making it less dangerous; a rather positive outcome.

Quoting the guys over at Ulefone:

Ulefone Power only emit smog with some heat when its battery is cut by electric saw, while Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explode badly with normal use.

This also¬†shows how the video is a playful¬†challenge directed to Samsung and its detonating¬†Note 7 problems. Now we wonder, who’s gonna be next?
