Xiaomi Mi Band 5

This Wednesday a post on Xiaomi’s Reddit raised the curiosity of many netizens. One user posted a photograph of a destroyed Xiaomi Mi Band 5, claiming it exploded while charging.

We tried to speak with the author of the publication, Michele Costa, who sent us some photographs of the product and told the story. Everything will have happened while the smartband carried on a table in a very normal way.

“I was carrying it 5, 10 minutes ago and suddenly it started to catch fire,” he told 4gnews by private message. According to the user, it was a practically new product and the global version of the smartband.

After telling us the story and sending the photos showing the Mi Band 5 completely destroyed, the user said that she has already sent the smartband back to Amazon. At the time of publication, no response has yet been received.

It remains to be seen what the resolution will be, and the user claims to have used the original charger while charging. This is not exactly a new scenario in smartphones, but in products of this kind it is more rare.

It is important to note that this type of situation can occur on any device with a defect in its battery. It is therefore always important to use original or certified chargers. However, other reports of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 that exploded are not known.

Any update to the situation will be reported as soon as a response from Amazon / Xiaomi is obtained from the user.
