Wow, MIND-BLOWING: Florida Man gets an earful from 'exploding Apple AirPod' bud

What is required on Apple's part is the implementation of a safety system that should indicate in some or the other way to warn the user of an electrical issue.

Colon chose to leave it on a piece of workout equipment and seek help, but when he returned, the earphone apparently was good as gone.

Mr Colon says he believes the gadget's battery was responsible for the damage. Florida's WFLA TV reports that the man, Jason Colon, was working out at an exercise center when he saw smoke originating from the AirPod in his correct ear.

"Just because it happens to me doesn't mean it won't happen again", he said.

Jason Colon, of Tampa, said on Thursday he noticed white smoke coming out of the painfully trendy headphone bud, set the gizmo down on his workout machine, and went off to get an LA Fitness staffer for help. It was already popped. "But I'm sure that since it hangs down, it could've been [my] ear lobe, you know, my ear lobe could've been burnt".

Explosion at mosque in Libya's Benghazi kills 2, injures 75
One bomb was hidden in a coffin in the courtyard of the mosque and another in a shoe cabinet at the entrance, the source added. The UN has been trying to mediate for years, hoping elections could help stabilise Libya.

Colon immediately removed the AirPods, and after a while, he observed that the earbud was starting to melt. "I didn't see it happen but it was already fried. You can see flame damage", Colon told the station.

This isn't the first case of a popular product bursting into flames.

An Apple spokeswoman told WFLA the company is investigating the incident and that it intends to reach out to Colon.

Samsung in 2016 recalled its Galaxy Note 7 after its faulty battery caused some of them to explode. When he returned, he was shocked to find the right headphone had shattered, he said.
