When a mobile phone explosion kills a person, you think it is a rare event. When you learn that another man just died for the same reason, you start looking at yours like a potential killer.
The mobile phone of this victim–a man in a Lenovo shop in Guangzhou, China–exploded without warning in his shirt pocket, sectioning his neck artery and making him bleed to dead. The battery was recently recharged and, according to a fellow employee, it was completely new. The origin of the battery is still unknown.
