Moto E3 Power catches fire while charging inside home

Moto E3 Power featuring a 3500 mAh battery catches fire while charging. The user claims that he was indeed using an original charger.

It’s another day and another smartphone fire hazard incident. In the long haul, we have seen Samsung and Xiaomi phones catching the fire while charging as well as while idle. However, for the first time, a user has been reported that his 1 year and 2 months old Moto E3 Power smartphone has been completely burnt off, where the most part of the phone has melted down like butter.

According to the mobile owner Sachin Yadav, he kept his Moto E3 power to charging using the original charger that came with the phone, so, this time either Lenovo or Motorola cannot complain about the usage of third party charger or third-party charger. Usually, smartphone OEM’s are likely to compensate the losses incurred by the consumer by providing a newer smartphone and further investigating the case to know about the actual cause of this incident.

Even Sachin Yadav has all his recorded the entire incident with taking photographs of the incident. So, we have to wait for the Official Motorola or Lenovo’s comments on this incident. Originally, the Motorola Moto E3 Power was launched in early 2016, which offered the following tech specifications.

The Moto E3 Power came with a 5.0-inch 720p IPS LCD screen with Corning Gorilla Glass on the top. Under the hood, the device is powered by MediaTek Quad-core SoC, paired with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB onboard flash storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot (up to 64 GB).

With respect to camera capability, the device came with an 8 MP rear-facing camera with a 5 MP front-facing selfie camera with 720p video recording capability. However, the feature that caused this damage would be the 3500 mAh Li-ion battery.  As the device has a built-in battery, the cause of the fire is very confusing. Hope, Lenovo or Moto comes with a legible answer to solve this issue.
