Posted on August 20, 2018 – 08:00
The batteries used in Apple devices once again gave the technicians at the Apple Store a fright, this time it was the battery in an iPad in Amsterdam.
Apparently, after following the usual procedure, the technicians began to suffer respiratory problems due to the gases emitted by this battery. Time when the firemen have come to the site to assess the situation.
As a preventive measure, the Apple Store has been evacuated so that other staff and customers do not inhale the toxic gases. Fortunately, the incident did not escalate.
Everything seems to indicate that the iPad battery that the technicians were handling, was not in good condition, apparently swollen. The technicians would have followed the procedure for these cases. This procedure appears to involve burying the battery in a sandbox and poking it to relieve the pressure.
Some users have shared through social networks the moments after the incident, where we insist that fortunately it has not gone any further and did not cause any kind of damage to customers. This is not the first time that an Apple Store makes the news because of some problem with the battery of the iPhone or iPad.
In Spain we also had a similar case, namely with an iPhone battery in the Apple Store in Valencia . This time the iPhone did cause a small explosion, as well as releasing gases and smoke. Luckily, the incident did not go any further.
If for any reason you need to change the battery of your iPhone, we remind you that Apple has a program to change the battery of your iPhone for a closed price of 29 euros . This program is available until the end of the year in any Apple Store , authorized store or from the online technical support.
