Using third-party charge

Smartphone manufacturers always suggest consumers to use official charger. Using unofficial or third-party chargers can affect the internals of the smartphone, leading to exploding incidents.

Expose to water or any liquid

Exposing any electronic device including smartphone to water or any liquid is bad for the device’s health. Water can affect the internals of the smartphone including battery, which can eventually lead to explosion. Nowadays, some phones come with IP certification, but options are limited in this regard. It should be noted that IP certification doesn’t mean the phone can be impressed in water completely. In fact, you should not immerse any electronic gadget into water. (Image: Pixabay)
