After months of doldrums, Samsung finally revealed the reason behind the Galaxy Note 7 fire. Reports presented by the third-party analyst firms blamed the manufacturing defect of the battery as the main culprit of the blunder. This incident has driven the South Korean technology giant to take some serious steps to improve product safety in the coming future.

Its new safety measures include:-

8-Point Battery Safety Check:-

Samsung will check the product’s safety from the very basic level, from the component level to the assembly and shipment level.

The various tests going to be operated on devices include Durability Test, Visual Inspection, X-Ray Test, Disassembling Test, OCT Test, Charge and Discharge Test, TVOC Test, and Accelerated Usage Test.

Multi-Layer Safety Measures:-

This measure will take focus on the safety related to the product’s design, materials used, hardware capabilities, and improved software algorithm for safer battery charging temperature.

In the last some days, the company faced a number of problems related to the battery that’s why the company formed a group named “battery advisory group”. This group consists of academic and research experts for ensuring the safety of batteries to a greater extent.

Samsung announced the members of the group which includes Clare Grey, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry, University of Cambridge; Gerbrand Ceder, Ph.D., Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, UC Berkeley; Yi Cui, Ph.D., Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Stanford University; and Toru Amazutsumi, Ph.D., CEO, Amaz Techno-consultant.

According to Samsung, “Samsung hopes that this case will serve as an opportunity to improve the safety of lithium-ion batteries not only for the company but for the entire industry, and will actively share the lessons learned to contribute toward improved safety standards.”
