OnePlus One bursts into flames while charging in India
posted by Ben R. / Aug 25, 2016, 5:18 AM
The device was apparently on charge for around two hours before it proceeded to combust. Where the explosion of the Note 7 and numerous other cases of this nature can often be attributed to some kind of faulty, third-party cable or battery, this doesn't seem to have been the case here. Gosain tells PhoneArena that he has "never used any other charger," which means that potentially — and worryingly — this incident could repeat itself.
OnePlus 3. However, he's instead seeking monetary compensation — the amount of which remains undisclosed — and an Apple iPhone.Having taken his device to a service center, Gosain was told he could get a replacement in the form of a brand-new
OnePlus, meanwhile, has had this to say on the matter:
It's disconcerting that such an incident should occur and as Gosain points out, he's rather lucky to have emerged unscathed. As this particular user attempts to reach some kind of resolution with OnePlus, here's hoping this is not the start of a very unwelcome trend.

Yeah...the cable looks unscathed. He either forgot to unplug it after it burst which is odd, or he plugged it in for one of the pics which is also odd.

Well how else is he supposed to get free s**t if he don't act like he was using the stock charger and cable!! So they were going to give him a new phone and he said no he wants money??? I'd tell him to get bent then!

This will probably happen more and more until USB-C accessories get matured

This can happen to any phone brand. I never leave anything plugged up while away from house now.

Hmmm from the location of this and the note 7 explosion, which last I checked is near the charging circuit, my guess would be something overheated or went wrong in the circuit, maybe due to the new quickcharge? most other incidents have been at an edge, not center :( not so great, especially if there was an adapter, maybe it mixed up the signals?
