Nokia warns of overheating batteries
Posted on 9-Feb-2003 00:03 | Tags Filed under: News

Nokia released the following, regarding faulty batteries made by third parties and pirate companies:

"Over the past months, cases have been reported of non-original mobile phone batteries overheating in the European, African and Asian regions, causing damage to both batteries and phones. As these reported cases understandably raise public concern, Nokia wants to raise consumer awareness about non-original batteries and the possible consequences of using non-original batteries.

Nokia is currently conducting a thorough investigation of various non-original batteries manufactured by different entities and obtained in a number of regions. Based on the investigation conducted on the non-original batteries that Nokia has been able to obtain, the batteries appear to not fulfill the safety and quality requirements Nokia applies to original Nokia batteries. It is also possible that using non-original mobile phone chargers increase the risk of battery malfunction.

Original Nokia batteries and chargers are designed and manufactured adhering to stringent safety and quality measures. These include very strict requirements regarding the materials and insulation used inside the batteries as well as continuous production control and intensive product testing.

At Nokia, product safety and quality is an integral part of our business. Nokia recommends that consumers use only original Nokia accessories with Nokia mobile phones. Under the normal Nokia warranty provisions, using non-original accessories may invalidate the warranty."
