We've all heard stories about phones that burn and explode even when the batteries are wrong, but it's not something that often happens when we work with laptops. But a smoking MacBook Pro has caused quite a stir after it was reported that it was burning and then "burned in flames."
The MacBook Pro was owned by a DJ who went to the name White Panda, and he says he used the computer normally before exploding.
Yesterday afternoon, the MacBook Pro exploded during normal use. It was on my lap, plugged in, and suddenly began to emerge from both sides. I quickly placed it on the floor where it popped, the smoke increased, and it was burning. Toxic smelling smoke filled my house which triggers smoke and CO alarms. No one was hurt, fortunately, but there was some damage to my home.
MacBook Pro was a 2015 15-inch model, and no third-party repairs have been performed. The notebook has apparently undergone a couple of works by Apple, but nothing battery-related.
Before the notebook was burned, it was charged using an official Apple power adapter, so the first suspicion that a third party power source was causing the fire to appear unfounded. Apple has already "escalated" the case according to the DJ, with the company likely eager to find out whether the problem arose due to a problem with the hardware itself or because it was maltreated.
My MacBook Pro exploded today under normal use. No damage, fortunately. Some damage to the house. May have been worse – well I wasn't on a plane.
Very curious about how @Apple responds. . 2019
