777888999 Don’t pick this number as phone is blasting after receiving this number

There is no mechanism that will cause a phone to explode after receiving a phone call. And, the only thing in a cell phone that can explode is the battery. But, it is virtually impossible for the battery to explode because of a phone call. Unless there is a serious flaw in the assembly or design of the battery, it's highly unlikely for an electronic device, be it a smartphone, tablet or clock radio, to explode.

Therefore, it is not a phone call from 777888999 or other phone numbers you should be worried about, it is taking care of your mobile device's battery you should be worried about. Here are some tips for taking care of your battery so it does't combust or burn up:

  • Only use the manufacturer's original battery or those from well-known replacement brands. It may be tempting to buy cheap batteries, but consider how much you pay for your phone and how much you like your apartment in one piece. You wouldn't put threadbare tires on a Ferrari.
  • Don't leave your device in hot areas, especially if it's charging. That only makes overheating problems worse. Ambient temperatures affect batteries a lot.
  • If your phone is charging or you are using functions that cause it to heat up a lot, make sure you are using it in a ventilated place (which means taking it out of its case, if you have one). This is especially important if it is charging overnight.
  • And surprisingly, charging your battery once it hits 50 percent is actually a good thing. Li-ion batteries don't suffer from memory issues like some batteries, but they can be damaged by low voltage.
