Explosion threat: MacBook Pro banned from taking aboard
Remember the story with the long-suffering Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, when due to the threat of an explosion, the batteries were forbidden to carry it on board in any state – on or off, and even check in your luggage? Now in a similar situation was the 15-inch MacBook Pro 2015.
The U.S. Civil Aviation Authority has notified airlines of a ban on laptops due to the risk of self-ignition. Thus, the agency takes care of the safety of airline customers. It states that there is a high risk that the fire of a laptop battery on board an airplane that is in the sky can lead to disastrous consequences.
It all started with the fact that a number of users were faced with cases of causeless self-ignition of the MacBook Pro due to a defective battery, which were produced between September 2015 and February 2017. As a result of the fact that laptop batteries arbitrarily detonated, more than 20 people worldwide were injured.
This incident did not go unnoticed by Apple, which urged users to stop using the device, and announced the recall of laptops at risk. According to experts, we are talking about about 500 thousand problem devices.
