Do Not Use Handphone While Charging It

I am guilty of this as well. Sometimes I do just that, while my handphone is being charged then I would still be using it. Today I received an email from my nephew on this. I have no idea whether this is true or not. I am quite sure that a few of you would have received it as well. If anyone of you know the authenticity of this claim please share with us. If this is TRUE somewhat, please take this as a precaution.

Subject: FW: Do not use your phone while charging.

Dear All,

I send this message to make you aware of the danger potential

of the commonly used cellular phone. A few days ago, a close relative of mine
was recharging his cellphone at home. Just at that time a call came and he
attended to that call with the instrument still connected to the mains.


After a few seconds electricity flowed into the cellphone unrestrained
and the young man was thrown to the ground with a heavy thud. His parents
rushed to the room only to find him unconscious, with weak heartbeats and
burnt fingers. He was rushed to the nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead
on arrival. The cellphone is a very useful modern invention. However, we
must be aware that it can also be an instrument of death. Never use the
cellphone while it is hooked to the mains!

This is my humble plea.

Sincerely,

Dr. D. Suresh Kumar R&D

Aunty N, tak pernah dengar pun, mungkin iya, mungkin tidak. Pasal exploding phone pernah la dengar, siap ada link lagi: http://www.wirelessconsumers.org/site/pp.asp?c=giJYJ3OOF&b=14007

Kalau nak diikutkan, voltage untuk charging batt henfon nih tak berapa tinggi.(Paling tinggi pun 12 V dan arus abt 500mA) Pulak tu, it's a dc, not ac.(Charger tu yang convert the current from ac to dc dan lower the voltage) Unless, adapter tu dah rosak, telefon pun ada short circuit, dan arus dari 240V socket tu terus masuk through the phone dan ke badan budak ni tadi.

Apa pun, mesti ingat, pakai cellphone kalau agak-agak dah berkurun tu, tukarlah, pakai adapter pun seelok eloknya yang original, yang tak ori takut standard dia tak menepati piawai keselamatan yg ditetapkan, batteri pun jaga jaga dengan yang tak ori sebab takut kes explode tuh..

Huhuhu..panjangnya eksplenesen...tumpang lalu yek, Aunty N...
