During the past few months first my iPhone 5 battery bulged and the bulging smashed the screen, thereafter an iPod did the same and now my MacBook Pro 15 is bulging, too. Among the numerous threads about Apple batteries in this forum there was one post that said every consumer should know that this inevitably happens. I beg to differ. During the past 25 years no device or laptop I owned has ever had this issue. That includes the 2009 ThinkPad that I use to post here. Airlines restrict lithium-ion batteries for a reason, see Sony and Samsung. A while ago there was even a story in the Chinese press of an iPhone 6 fiery explosion. I really do not care about the US$ 120 or so that it takes to mend also the latest bulging Apple battery, but in view of the accumulation of incidents in my home I wonder if it is safe to continue having battery-powered Apple devices in my household. Has anyone on this forum had an Apple device going up in flames as a result of battery failure?
