      Yes,
      With older phones that had removable batteries these were common.
      With the Smartphones Only Samsung, my J7 Pro just swelled up. Not with any other smartphones.

    I thought my own expanded batteries were because I disassembled and manhandled them 'inappropriately'... but it turns out its a much larger issue. Hope we get some answers!

    A bit late on this but one my old phones, a Samsung 7 (not the note 7 that was recalled), caught fire in my sweatshirt pocket for seemingly no reason. I was never able to actually determine why it happened, but thinking back this might have something to do with it. Hopefully there’s some sort of explanation soon.

    Note4 was my last Samsung phone. I had it less than half a year when it suddenly died. I tried to upgrade the operation system, but that probaly caused the issue. I sent it to Samsung for check up, but they replied that there is a tiny dent in the bottom corner of the screen and they will not look into it unless I agree with replacing the screen - at my cost. The cost was a few quid short of the price I paid for the phone. I said no and now I have a useless device that broke within 6 months warranty and I am not going to buy Samsung smartphone for years to come. All I needed was someone with proper software to look into why it crashed and doesn't work anymore. The screen wasn't an issue.

    As a former Samsung Repair technician for about a decade, I know that from the S4 Series to the S20 Series, Samsung used Lithium Polymer batteries.
    These are labeled as just "Li-Ion" However they also use a nickel and magnesium substrate between the Lithium layers. This is uncommon with most other companies, but Samsung uses this substrate as a "Shield" of sorts to discharge the battery in case of a puncture.
    However what Samsung will not tell you is that this was a mistake since Magnesium has a Half-Life of around 1,000 hours and produces carbon Dioxide as a by product of decomposition. This causes the batteries to swell and eventually rupture.
    The S21 series and beyond no longer have a metallic substrate, with a discharge circuit built into the motherboard of the phone. This is a well known issue within Samsung and its subsidiaries, but has not been released to the public as far as I know.

    I worked for Samsung as a software dev. Yes, they are taking it seriously but not because they care for you but because they already had a lot of history with phones blowing up and are now extremely sensitive about it for PR reasons. Also once you sent them anything that might be embarrassing for them there is no way you are getting it back. I am surprised they did not attempt to get you under NDA.
    And yes, one of two Samsung phones I ever owned also got hot and I had to throw it outside my house. It did not blow up but there was no question it ran down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. Also no other phones used by me or my close family did the same.

    have had a note9 since it has been released, still using it today as no new phones quite pique my interest. however i have had no issue with this or any of my samsung phones in the past. I would also like to mention that i do only charge my phone to 80% using a third party app, and restrict the cpu to 70% usage, to prevent thermal overhead. but i could just be one of the lucky ones with a good battery. as my S7 also had no issues and didn't turn that in upon recall.

    Definitely an eye opener, at my work we store a ton of old cell phone batteries none of which have been connected to phones for long periods of time (we do use them to test other phones without batteries though). We have noticed a few have budged batteries which were Samsung but we just thought this was a case of it could be happening to any battery not brand specific. I'll be taking a look at them the next chance I get to see if any more are blown or not. Thanks for bringing this up it could save lives.

I think it was unbox theory Chanel who told people that the device could bend if you put force on it. There were a lot of people testing how the phone could be bent in different different scenarios. I believe this Chanel did some testing as wel.

    Nowhere in this did you point to the very likely relevant fact that literally every example of this happening was with people who have hundreds of phones that are never used and stored with probably 100% capacity in a very unusual scenario.
    I'm OBVIOUSLY not saying this is okay, but you're only looking at data from people in this very weird specifict scenario. I've daily driven many of the phones talked about in this video (S4, S6, S9) and I still have all of them and none of them have had this problem.

    Hello Arun, from my aviation background I have been dealing with Lithium batteries since 1999 way before they became mainstream in electronics. Indeed Zack has a point about the electrolyte. But going back to the physics: any LiPo battery left long enough without use will eventually swell. I have seen this with huge Lipo units of 100AH installed on Airbus A340 or B737 that have been on hangar storage for 2+ years. To avoid this situation, the voltage of a Lipo cell must ALWAYS be kept at 3.8V for storage. Otherwise depending on the electrolyte layer, leaks will gradually occur and the battery will swell. In high density batteries like those in our cells phones, the problem is way more exacerbated than a 18650 standalone battery that has a more conservative density factor. For industrial LiPo batteries that have a T connector terminal, there are specialized chargers that can keep the voltage at 3.8V for extended storage. Yes, Lipo are not meant to be parked but to be regularly used between 4.2V per cell for a full charge and 3.7 when nearly empty. 3.5-3.6V means overdrain and can irreversibly damage the battery.

      Yes it's incorrect storage have to keep 50% charge and recharge every 3-6 months. This is why you don't see swollen batteries on a 4 year old phone that's used regularly. Cars are the same if you store them over 6 months. Battery goes, fuel goes engine can even seize eventually among other things, if you don't start and drive them.

      @Pub Runner I had the experience myself with other brands. Depends on so many factors. But I guess, that Samsung batteries might be discharging a little bit faster when the phone is off.
      Since they seem to hit the magic barrier of around 2.5V a little bit faster.
      For context, I study electrical engineering in a master degree and work at an institute for battery technologie. We test blown up batteries and try to figure out what happend. Up to date every brand got the issue, but their are devices like ultra slim gaming laptops for example Razer Blades that have this issue more often, since the battery gets hotter than it should.

      Hmm, regrettably it's the case that if Samsung takes your phone then refuses to communicate there's:
      a) A good chance you won't chase it up.
      b) They have plausible deniability going forward and you have no evidence having given them your phone.
      If they have any kind of conversation with you after the fact it's proof there was reason to have a conversation.

    This was very level-headed and fact driven.

All around though, great way to frame this up and keep us all posted on where it goes.

      Other brands also use samsung cells and they have no issues. I think its the fact that they allow for a deep discharge before the undervoltage protection kicks in, wich leaves the battery at an unreasonable low voltage wich generates gasses as the electrolyte decomposes as jerryrig stated. A chemical analysis is not worth it before we know the voltage of the cell, how long its been since the last charge, how much energy was left since shutdown and maybe the impedance.

    Interesting. Not sure if this is related, but I noticed my Samsung S10 +(purchased in approx April/May 2019) has recently started heating up excessively, in a short period of use, and the battery seems to be draining a lot quicker.
    I've ran Total AV virus and malware scans on it - nothing unusual but curious as to whether this is the start of the battery decline.
    Seems Samsung's communication and approach to dealing with this is quite unprofessional and lends itself (IMHO) to suspicious activity.

    I own a Samsung S9 and been using it for over 2 years now. And I charge it probably once every 2 days depending on usage. I've not noticed any bulging of the battery. So I can only assume the breakdown of the electrolyte happens when the voltage of the battery drops below a certain threshold over a period of time.

      Also using s9 currently. In the past I havent been responsible with charging (like letting it charge overnight), till recently. Ig im probably lucky that i replaced the battery recently. Better keep that battery between 20 to 80% treshhold and only charge up to 100 when u about to go out

    I think this has been a problem for Samsung for a long while before smartphones. I had a Samsung flip phone that also had battery bulge issues. It was less of an issue then since you could easily open and replace just the battery. My dad also had this issue on a flip style phone around the same time (not sure what brand) which was around 10 to 15 years ago. I don't think they ever really fixed the problem, maybe delayed it, and when it back more difficult for you to see the actual battery people didn't see it until it was really bad or on fire. I've also had a number of Samsung smartphones (3, 6, and 9) that have had difficulty with overheating especially when charging and with charging issues usually being their cause of death. So possibly this is either contributing or more likely an early warning sign the the battery's electrolytes are starting to decompose. Especially since they overheating seemed to happen more easily and more frequently as they aged. Definitely going to look into replacing my current Galaxy's battery with a non-Samsung one for now and may have to consider switching brands in the future depending on how this is addressed which saddens me since I've been using almost entirely Samsung since my first phone when I was 14 and largely prefer their design. Hopefully with you guys sharing this Samsung's execs will pony up and deal with it and not try to hide it. 🤞

      @everydayfun - Stop being so melodramatic. This only happens if you leave ANY phone uncharged for many years. When the battery goes completely flat, it puffs up. There is absolutely no danger of either explosion OR fire... the puffing only happens because the battery has no energy (charge) inside it.
      This does not just affect Samsung, and it doesn't just affect phones... it affects ALL lithium battery powered devices. Ask any R/C modeller what happens if you let your batteries go flat.
      If it really concerns you, then periodically (every 6 months) just charge your lithium powered devices (including phones).

    Just a thought: it might be worth considering much of the datapoints you have on this phenomena may be from Samsungs that are stored for extended periods of time. Your point about storing phones at 50% is important to battery longevity.
    When I got a Samsung I was blown away by the charge speeds and when I looked into it I believe I found they had been marketing somesort of exclusive proprietary tech for their batteries to improve charge speeds. It's my assumption that Samsung may have invested in battery tech that prioritizes charging/discharge efficiency over all else. For a typical consumer this would be a great benefit. However, if the batteries actually fall short of industry standard when outside a high charge/discharge use-case, perhaps this is what we would see. Batteries meant to be in a constant state of charge or discharge, instead being stored for 3+ years at what could be a suboptimal charge state (90-100%).
    This is just food for thought. I'm just a consumer.

    I have been a HUGE fan of the Samsung Galaxy Note line since the first one was released. And I can say I have never had any issues with the batteries expanding, blowing up, or catching fire. This is even true for the Note 7. However, I will also add that I have not had a Note phone for more than 2-3 years as I usually upgrade to the next release. I currently have the Note 20 (not the ultra as I hate the edge screen) and have had it for almost two years so its approaching the "trade in" time frame. With no new Note releases I had considered just keeping it - or maybe trading it in for a Pixel 7; was still debating that. Now I will say I have had a few of the S model phones but they always seemed to be wanting in comparison to the Notes. One key thing I noticed is when using the S phones in the Samsung VR headset, the S phone would overheat and shut down after 15-20 minutes. This did not happen when using the Notes. Not relevant to the exploding/expanding battery issue I'll grant you but this aberrant behavior turned me off from ever having another S model. Now that I have seen this video and considering the age of my Note 20, I think I will go ahead and trade it in for a pixel 7. Right now its basically a one-for-one trade with the Black Friday deals out there. (BTW: I am a fan of your channel. Cheers!)

    I've been using Samsung Galaxy phones going back to model S2. Currently I have a Galaxy S10+ and a Galaxy S8+. I've never experienced phone damage due to battery expansion. However I have had to throw some Samsung phone batteries out when I noticed they had become bloated. Note this was with earlier models, where battery removal and replacement didn't require any time or tools. I came to notice the deformed batteries only because of my way of dealing with needing to recharge mid way through the work day, by simply swapping out the depleted battery for a fresh one. (Then recharging both later overnight, one within the phone and the other inserted in an external charger.) .

    I noticed that my Galaxy M51 (which I had for less than 2 years) had its battery completely blown up after a 9.5-hour flight. I had already bought a new phone, so I stored it in my checked bag during the flight. My initial guess was that it was due to the change in pressure, but the battery had to be extremely sensitive for that to be the case since commercial planes' baggage compartments are also pressurized. I could never figure out the cause of this issue.
    There's DEFINITELY something wrong with Samsung's phone batteries. I wonder if that also extends to other products such as their cameras and headphones...

Recently swapped my Note 4 for an S20 FE and left the Note unused for like a month... the battery also ballooned up.

    Yep can double confirm this with my collection too. Recent phones to have blown up batteries are my Galaxy Note 10+ and shockingly my Fold 2 this summer. No other phones in my collection have done this from Pixels to iPhones to Xiaomi's etc. Weirdly enough, It happened to my Samsung phones that came after the Note 7. My Galaxy S1 till S6 Edge are completely fine stored in the same place & in exact same conditions. There is something they have done to their batteries after the Note 7 fiasco that needs to be investigated. With that being said, It only happens to the "stored Samsung phones". No active Samsung phone in use has done this so far.

    Yeah, several years ago I had a Galaxy S7 Active swell like that. The phone was a little under two years old and had been very gently used. No battery intensive things like gaming, never in extreme temperatures for longer than just walking to the car or to the house/building, and only ever dropped once and that from the height of a chair down onto carpet. It was used daily too.
    I was so sad because before that it'd been my favorite phone! I still haven't had another that I liked as well as it.
    I hope Samsung gets back to you and actually figures out what they're doing different to other manufacturers so they can change.

    A similar thing happened to me too. After I retired my Galaxy note III to my drawer, I came back to it a couple of years later and found the screen had lifted and home button popped off. After checking the battery, it had swelled up causing it to bend the internal metal plate forcing the glass screen to lift off.
    I was shocked. Unbelievable.

      @Mr K I believe it but I got a old iPad that’s useless because it’s obsolete being at least 7-10 years old so it can be bulletproof is irrelevant if you can’t use apps on it once it’s old enough. Apple is planned obsolescence you can always use a very old android or windows computer

    I used to work in Apple's warehouse recieving damaged phones. Battery swelling was common. I don't think it has much to do with Samsung.

    The only phone I've had whose battery almost exploded was my old LG Optimus from waaaay back in 2011, the smart phone/slide-up keyboard phone. My mom and I both had the same phone. This was back when you could remove the back cover and the battery of phones without companies losing their minds, so on long vacations or if we didn't have an easily accessible charging spot, my mom would carry an extra battery around for one of us if needed.
    Fast forward to 2015-ish. By then my Optimus had been long out of commission and was sitting in a basket on our kitchen counter with the rest of our old electronics. I happen to be cleaning out the basket as a bored kid, and sure enough, my old phone was bloated. I pop it open, and I looked at the fattest battery I've ever seen in my life. Of course, I was a dumb kid, so I just threw the battery in the trash, because I didn't realize I was tossing a fire hazard away. I don't know if it was the battery that came with the phone, or if it was one of the extra batteries, I just remember it being huge.

    One important thing that is missing from this was the charge state you had all these phones in. If left full charged that is bad, also fully discharged is bad. Lithium batteries should be stored around 50% charge which is their sweet spot where they are happiest.

      That is the problem with batteries like those. If you add the ‘strain’, it is one more inconvenience for the user. Luckily, batteries are evolving.
