Samsung SDI’s China factory catches fire

Samsung SDI is the battery-making affiliate of the Samsung Group. Samsung Electronics sources a big chunk of the batteries for its mobile devices from this company, and yes, Samsung SDI was one of the suppliers for the Galaxy Note 7′s battery as well. It’s actually going to be supplying the bulk of the batteries for the Galaxy S8 as well.

Following reports out Weibo, a spokesman for Samsung SDI confirmed that there was a “minor fire” at its factory in northern China. The pictures that circulated online showed plumes of black smoke rising into the air. Samsung SDI spokesman Shin Yong-doo said that the factory at the company’s Tianjin plant didn’t affect production.

Cue the jokes about fires and explosions, since Samsung SDI was squarely blamed for the Galaxy Note 7′s troubles as well. The spokesman did clarify that the fire occurred at a waste depository and the not the production facility so it’s not like everything that Samsung SDI creates has a tendency to catch fire.

We should respect Samsung as this company has delivered us with alot of best devices we loved. And accidents happen everywhere without notice and one’s intention. We should give time to our (or at least 50% of us) beloved company to resolve the issues. I (and alot of us for sure) love samsung… best wishes

Yeah, read it well. So the fools disposed the defective batteries off simply by throwing them off to a waste depository. Then, as they usually do, they caught fire and consequencely caused the methane gas produced by the waste to catch fire and explode further helping the fire in the building grow and spread fast.

then where else do they have to throw discarded batteries besides waste depository? Samsung’s been making batteries for more than 20 years now and it never happened before, so we don’t know exactly what actually happened some Chinese dude may have not followed the regulation or some which they are known for
