Hi freinds,
Just wanted to warn you about the anker battery.
Exploded in my device few months ago and forgot to write it in this forum.



Have a nice weekend,
k_ayal.

WTF? Have a nice weekend?! LOL

Kind of want more details than that. Like, if you are rooted, if so what rom, were you overclocked, etc.,

"Have a nice weekend"....kinda like....here, your dog died, have a nice weekend!

LOL, wanted to know of someone is intrested.
My phone is rooted, the rom was virtuous 2.1.0, regular OC to 1.5 GHz.
The device was charged during the night and half an hour after I plugged it off the charger and was sitting in my car the phone exploded in the phone car holder doing nothing while explotion.
Hope your dog is fine

Was it in direct sunlight? I doubt the rom or clock speed had anything to do with it. If it wasnt charging it either got too hot or was puffed from use and finally went. I dont get why people are using the cheapest batteries they can find in 300 dollar phones. I did a comparison on an anker and the stock battery a while back and the anker ended up being about the same as the evo 3d battery iirc. Its totally not worth putting in your phone. Not to mention no temperature sensor! I can believe people would use a battery without one!

This sounds VERY bogus. No picture of your phone, or any explanation! Without hard evidence, your claim, which is first of its kind, is unverifiable.

Moreover, how do you know for a fact that it was Anker Battery that caused the meltdown, and NOT exposing your phone to direct sunlight for a prolonged period, though HTC specifically & expressly warns against it on the Manual!

Furthermore, Ankers are well praised for keeping cool temperatures.

Conclusion:
The only plausible scenario is that you were running your GPS while driving, with your phone hung in direct sunlight, for a long time. I believe this is how you killed your previous phone ( HTC Desire ) as well, only you blamed it on a faulty motherboard.

Advice:
My experience with driving with GPS on, and phone in direct sunlight cause these phones to heat up to fierce temperatures and something will inevitably break - my HD2's previous digitizer, for example. So, it would serve you better to put your phone away from sunlight if you use it as your daily GPS device.

better luck with your next phone, and I hope u remember my advice.

P.S. And, don't think your Samsung Galaxy SII is immune to this!!!!

I just wanted to warn everybody, believe it or not - its your call.
I didnt add any photos of the phoone because nothing can be seen on it, it looks fine.
The device was exposed to sun for 10 minuts, it cant get the phone to such a high temperature, the phone was in idle mode, the gps wasnt on...
The 10 minutes didnt kill the phone, my desire was tested in HTC UK and verifyed as a problem in the mother board, beside that the desire was really in gps mode but it was 22:00...
What galaxy?...
