Samsung Finishes Week With a Bang After Another Fire

Samsung Finishes Week With a Bang After Another Fire

This time the fire took place at Samsung SDI’s factory in China, a company which supplies batteries to the accident prone Galaxy Note 7, according to Bloomberg. Photos circulated on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, showing smoke billowing out of the top of the factory, but the blaze was under control in a short period of time.

A spokesperson was quick to note the incident did not affect production, because we were all really worried that the supply of potentially flammable batteries was potentially going to be short. With Valentine’s Day around the corner there must be hundreds, if not thousands, of dog-house ridden husbands who are trying to get back into the good books by buying their partners a potentially lethal Galaxy Note 7. Now that is getting bang for your buck.

Since the fire started, and was extinguished, another row has erupted from the flames, namely, the cause of the inferno. It is reported that fire personnel blame the firestorm on batteries that were on the production line, while Samsung has pinned the blaze on a faulty unit which had already been disposed of. Irrelevant of the truth, the red-hot debate rages on.
