Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Battery Quick Fix Is No Full Recharge

Computers, Gadgets, Games, Internet, Science and Innovation, Technology, World News
Samsung said Wednesday it would limit recharging of the batteries of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones to lower the risk of explosions in a measure apparently intended to jolt users into returning their devices following a recall.

Samsung announced a software update that will limit battery recharges to 60 percent of capacity in a half-page advert carried by major South Korean newspapers. It would prevent the phones from overheating, and thus exploding, but would effectively mean a downgrade of the high-end device. "It is a measure that prioritises consumer safety but ...
