Apple Says Third-Party Battery Caused Headphones Explosion

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 19 May 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.
