Man says his Apple airpods exploded into flames

  • Apple is investigating why one AirPod caught on fire in Florida

"And then I saw white smoke start billowing out", he said. Florida based TV Channel also reported the entire story, Jason Colon, a Florida based man was working out at a gym.

Such reports have continued to plague Samsung, which first issued a voluntary recall of its Galaxy Note 7 phones because of a "battery issue" on September 2, offering to give replacement phones to customers who had bought the devices. When he examined the right ear bud, it looked charred. I didn't see it happen, but I mean, it was already fried! "You can see flame damage", Colon said.

It is still a mystery how these AirPods caught fire at the beginning.

Apple says it is investigating the claims, which could have resulted in serious burns had the man not quickly removed the allegedly faulty gadget.

Technology gets stranger and at times, more risky by the day. Apple's same iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus got their batteries swelled up in the past.

The first was that the battery components in the Galaxy Note 7 did not fit in the battery's casing.


In the 2017 Apple Special Event, Apple had even teased an optional wireless charging case.

They're not ideal, but for a first generation product, they're pretty good.

The original incident took place at LA Fitness on 4th Street in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Thursday. He warns other users to be careful while using AirPods.

Apple has said that it is investigating the issue and plans to reach out to Colon.

We would, however, welcome a set of small buttons on one or both of the AirPods' stems to skip or replay tracks and change the volume while exercising, as Siri voice commands are just not suitable during exercise. Apple will soon finish the investigation and they will come up with the conclusion. When he returned, he was shocked to find the right headphone had shattered, he said.
