Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explodes during charging, witness photos from the aftermath
The aftermath of a Galaxy Note 7 explosion is an ugly sight to see. Still brand new, the phablet has basically turned to charcoal. Unfortunately, no one can tell how the accident was provoked, only that it happened during charging with a microUSB to Type C converter for the cable.

Hopefully, the issue won't be widespread, for that will put lots of customers in danger. For now, we can only recommend using original Samsung gear to charge your phablet, as well as keeping it far from sources of heat or water – in general, not just during charging. The accident seems to have happened in China, where the photos originate from.
