CCTV Footage Shows Overcharged Cellphone Exploding and Causing Fire




  • A viral video on Facebook shows us the dangers of leaving a cellphone unattended while charging.
  • The device later exploded several times and caused fire.

Many of us have that habit of charging our phones just right before we hit the bed. Besides, we love the feeling of waking up with a fully-charged device as we wake up from our sleep, right?

Well that’s okay if your phone is equipped to handle that. Otherwise, you might want to think twice – especially after watching this video.

Case in point, a viral CCTV footage shows us how overcharging can be a terrible idea.

As you will see on the said video, leaving your gadget unattended while it is charging can lead to a tragic disaster.

Beware of your devices, everyone!

In a viral video posted on Facebook by a user named Jacklyn Chang, we see a possible scenario when people do that – and it’s pretty scary. The 30-second clip starts out quiet and then all of a sudden, it surprises viewers with a series of explosions.
