Apple’s AirPods Catch Fire in Owner’s Ears, Eventually Explode
If there’s something we learned in the last couple of years about smartphones, it’s that we should always keep an eye on them, especially when charging, as the current battery technologies that are being used could catch fire at any moment, eventually posing as a threat to our lives.
And now it turns out we should do the same thing with headphones given this new wireless trend that Apple is aggressively pushing for, as the company’s new AirPods have recently been involved in a terrifying incident.
Jason Colon from Tampa reveals that he was listening to music while working out, only to notice that one of the earphones started emitting smoke all of a sudden. Naturally, his first reaction was to pull out the AirPods and go ask for help from the staff. When he returned, the right AirPod was completely wrecked, showing signs of flames and a potential explosion that caused it to burst open.
