Last Wednesday, it was on the news. Watch the video clip here.
A woman woke up at about 1 a.m. to the loud explosion apparently of her cell phone while it was charging. Watch the video clip after the jump.
Lilibeth Vasquez-Legasto was sleeping in her room together with her daughter and grandchild when her Nokia N91 exploded while it was charging. Mrs. Legasto claimed that the cellphone and all its accessories are original. A professor from the UP Engineering Department believes that it’s the battery that caused the explosion.

Guess what? My mom’s celfone battery reads Nokia BL-5C Battery. I know because I bought it here. She has a 6600 celfone unit. My brother owns the same model with the same battery.
I logged on to:
and checked if their batteries need replacement. And here’s what it says:
Your battery is not among those manufactured by Matsushita between December 2005 and November 2006 and your battery will not be replaced.
Thank you for checking your battery.
Now… how do I know and make sure that my mother and brother are safe????
