Faulty and Overheating: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Batteries Recalled

August 17, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung had been at the receiving end for quite some time now. After the Galaxy Note 7 saw itself being annihilated at the market place owing to exploding batteries, the company is now facing hassles with the Note 4 batteries.

Reports pointed out that more than 10,000 Galaxy Note 4 batteries have been recalled by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, following complaints that they have been behaving abnormally.

These batteries had been passed through AT&T’s refurbishment process and distributed through FedEx supply chain. That makes the Korean manufacturer see some burden reduced, as the batteries were not supplied by Samsung and were non-OEM. The reports are that these set of batteries reacted abnormally and allegedly counterfeit – and that could have caused them to overheat.

Though the batteries were not placed in the Note 4 units, the recall would help in making sure that everything is safe.

If you are among those who have purchased the device, be advised that it would be good to stop using it and you need to power them off. Wait for a FedEx supply chain notification, and soon you will be given a free, fresh replacement battery and a postage paid return box to send the recalled battery back.
