Hm. It might be because I live in the tropics.
Are you saying it is an issue with both the Samsung and which other product.
My earlier smart phone was a Samsung GT-I9100T (“Galaxy S2”), which happily had a removable battery. I ended up with 3 after-market batteries and 2 OEM batteries, and used to swap batteries once or twice every day.
Every other rechargeable device with lithium batteries has also failed due to battery swelling or fluid leakage, including hair clippers etc, except for some netbook computers I bought in 2008, which had early lower-yielding 18650 cells (probably the same as the ones used by Tesla for its first car - the Roadster).
Are you able to explain how you did this? Lithium batteries are very expensive compared to standard lead acid car batteries.
I made room for the batteries by removing the petrol engine, and filled the entire engine bay with batteries. Lithium batteries are cheaper than SLA batteries per kWh of energy; nevertheless the batteries cost more than $20,000 each time .
They also require chargers matched to the cell characteristics, and balancing on a regular basis for multi cell packs.
Yes, I used Brusa NLG513 chargers, and Batrium BMS to manage the state-of-charge of each of the 96 cells. I am using an Orion BMS this time (for the 86 different cells), purely for the sake of changing what I can, since the cause of the fire remains a mystery.
