Spot the fire extinguishers in these photos of Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 battery testing lab

The phablets whose defects made the second half of 2016 a huge headache for Samsung's mobile business are arranged neatly and look as if the company is powering the entire facility using Note 7 clusters. But what's going to happen with these units after Samsung is done? It will be sad to see so many fine Exynos 8890 processors go to waste! Maybe Samsung can string them together into a super-computer and hold the world record for Super Mario Run indefinitely.

I think it waould be safe to assume, that any testing lab for phones has fire extinguishers in them. Another PoS hate article against Samsung from PA. Its a building where fire is possible and according to fire codes, because of the type of activity done in this lab, extinguishers would be normal. PA you are so full of shyte!

This. it's just risk management. Samsung is certificated OHSAS 18001 occupational Health and Safety, it would be a big non-conformity to not have at least an extinguisher, and many other preventive actions against the risk that emerge from their activities. Hell, everybody should have an extinguisher at home and in their cars.

"There are no signs of recent fires in any of the photos, which is a good thing – it means the fire extinguishers work." Not really no, it actually means that there's been no recent fires..... This kind of rationalisation, done in this article, can justify most anything, just saying.

The photos show all types of phone sbeing battery tested. Which proives Samsung simply has a lab where they do test their phones and as they stated, none of the phones prior to their retail release exploded during testing. Those rooms show all types of devices being tested. Note 5, Note 7, S7 edge and many tablets. Samsung does very aggressive testing on their products as all their testing videos have shown over the years. PA is really trying to ride this train, when they ahve nothign to ride. Dude...no matter how hard you are tryign to give them bad press, you are simply helping them get more customers. You ever saw Apple's testing? There tests treat the iPhone as a fragile child...all their testing is delicate compared to Samsung's testing. Samsung makes 50+ phone models and yet even with the Note 7 issue, it has a much less failure rate vs the iPhone 6's at 25%. Even if you could all the 30 Note 7's that failed, it would be 0.00000001 of 2.5M that were released originally. Poor PA, has nothign to wrote about so they wasting time helping us love Samsung even more. I don't need your help to choose Samsung PA, I already choose them. Loving my perfectly working Note 7.

You've been in Apple's testing labs? Must have special privileges then to know exactly how they test their products. And please show some proof from samsung stating that only 30 Note 7's failed. You throw numbers around all the time but you never provide anything to back them up. Anyone can come up with numbers. And i highly doubt all of those 2.5M that were released/shipped were actually in consumers hands and powered on. Far as I know, samsung never released how many were actually sold to consumers that were using them, vs ones that were sitting on shelves powered off. But pls, keep blowing smoke and making stuff up, your very good at it so might as well continue to do what your good at.

wonder why they couldnt reproduce the battery failures properly... the back glass isnt there to insulate the battery and create pressure on it while it expands over time because of how hot it gets when quick charging and using at the same time
