My mama once told me, Never buy an e-bike. It’ll explode on you.
And no matter how much I try to convince her otherwise, she still won’t give the money to “her useless bum of a son”.
But if you want, I can get you a power bank. They’re safe and they help me make sure you’re contactable.
Yes, she cares.
Not really, I just love calling you and screaming your ears off to vent.
But putting aside our loving relationship, there’s one thing she’s wrong about.
Powerbanks do explode.
Man’s Power Bank Explodes in Pocket at Bedok Hawker Centre
On 11 January 2019, a man’s power bank unexpectedly exploded in his pocket.
Witnesses to the incident said that they saw grey smoke and could smell the burning stench of chemicals in the air.
The man suffered burns on his hands when he removed the device from his pocket.
It was clear from the man’s expression that he was in a lot of pain and passers-by helped wrap ice around his hand with a plastic wrap.
