Some reports of faulty Note7s invalidated

Fewer incidents of burns and property damage, but there were 23 new cases of batteries overheating since Sept. 15 recall, consumer agency says

Gold said the Active device in the BGR report is "only peripherally connected to the Note7" since both phones have lithium-ion batteries but likely have different battery designs. "A device failure here or there does not mean the basic designs are flawed or that there should be a recall," he added. "All chemical, mechanical and electronic devices have some level of failure, and that's why manufacturers offer warranties."
