Samsung Galaxy Note7 owners urged to stop using device

The U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released a statement urging all consumers who own a Samsung Galaxy Note7 to power them down and stop charging or using the device.

This consumer warning is based on recent reports involving lithium-ion batteries in certain Note7 devices that have resulted in fires. These incidents have occurred while charging and during normal use, which has led us to call for consumers to power down their Note7s.
