Roskoshestvo said that all modern devices work on one type of energy source — rechargeable Li-ion battery. Sudden changes in temperature can lead to swelling and leaking of the battery, and damage or impact, in turn, to excessive heating of the battery. Therefore, all owners of smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices must be perceived the following recommendations:
to use proprietary chargers or certified by the manufacturer;
