Samsung finds two reasons to blame for Galaxy Note 7 exploding batteries
Note 7 batteries were made by Samsung SDI and AmperexThe Galaxy Note 7 went on sale in August 2016 and carried batteries manufactured by either Samsung SDI or Amperex Technology, a Hong Kong company that makes the batteries at a factory in China. At first, the company thought only the Samsung SDI-made batteries were defective and acted quickly to recall those units, but the following ramp-up of production at Amperex resulted in faulty manufacturing and problems arose again, causing the full recall.
96% of all Galaxy Note 7 have been returnedIn addition, Samsung officials have met with U.S. Government representative in Washington DC to present the report and the officials are allegedly happy with the investigation that has been carried out. The company has also laid out an 8-step plan including more testing, inspections and manufacturing quality assurance to ensure that the issue won't happen again.
