Airline passengers warned not to use Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Airline passengers are being warned not to use or charge their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones during flights.

“In light of recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its Galaxy Note 7 devices, the Federal Aviation Administration strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage,” the FAA said late Thursday in the U.S.

The warning comes a week after Samsung suspended Note 7 sales, following reports that a battery problem led to some devices catching fire during charging. It is extremely unusual for aviation officials to warn passengers about a specific product.

Last week, Samsung recalled 2.5 million Note 7 devices after confirming 35 cases of its rechargeable lithium batteries catching fire. Most explosions occurred while the battery was being charged. In one case, a family in Florida reported that their device left charging in their Jeep caught fire, destroying the vehicle.

Samsung launched the latest version of the Note series on 19 August. The South Korean company said in a statement last week that it would take about two weeks to prepare replacement devices.

A statement from Samsung UK said: “We are currently conducting a thorough inspection with our suppliers to identify possible affected batteries in the market. However, because our customers’ safety is an absolute priority, we have stopped sales of the Galaxy Note 7. For UK customers who already have Galaxy Note 7 devices, we will voluntarily replace their current device with a new one over the coming weeks.”
