The Wall Street Journal: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 supplier in China says its batteries didn’t cause explosions

BEIJING–A Chinese supplier said Monday that its batteries didn’t cause reported explosions of Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in China.

Two Galaxy Note 7 owners in China claimed on social media their phones had overheated and exploded over the weekend. Amperex Technology Ltd., the main supplier of batteries for Galaxy Note 7 phones sold in China, said in a statement that “outside factors” were to blame for the incidents.

Amperex said it had conducted a joint investigation with Samsung 005930, +2.03% of the reported explosions. Their preliminary conclusion was that they “are not directly related to the batteries produced by our company,” Amperex said.
