Apple Says Third-Party Battery Caused Headphones Explosion

Wochit Headline News - May 19, 2017

Apple says third-party batteries are to be blamed after a pair of its headphones exploded mid-flight, injuring a woman and damaging her clothing.

An Apple representative alleges its investigation “indicated the issue was caused by a third-party battery.

” However, the woman says the AAA batteries she purchased were from Australia and “nowhere on the headphones, or their packaging, does it specify which brand of batteries should be used.

” The headphones were bought in 2014 and haven’t been identified in any official statements..
