What all of this says to me is this, as long as we continue to push boundaries and demand bigger batteries in smaller form factors, there will continue to be risks associated with these desires. While we expect manufacturers to take every precaution to ensure these devices are safe, it's clear that not all are meeting this expectation. You only have one way to show your support or otherwise for these companies and that's with your wallet. Remember, we as consumers also are also expected to use these devices within the confines of the manufacturers instruction. I don't recall the last time I ever read that part of the manual, for a phone or any other electronic. I always see it there , usually the first few pages of the manual but I always zip past it to the "quick start guide" like most others. I'm sure there's warnings there about how to properly charge the phone and conditions I should avoid to ensure minimal risks. Perhaps the guy that left his phone charging in his car while his pants were wrapped around the phone is regretting his urgency to get to the " quick start guide".
