Google Nexus 5X And Nexus 6P Warning: Chargers Are Defective, Poses Threat To Owner’s Devices
Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P chargers, or at least a number of them, have been reported as defective by an independent product reviewer on August 3. These defective items have the potential of damaging other devices as well.
Last week, Nathan K. uploaded a YouTube video describing the test he conducted on the chargers of the Nexus 5X and 6P. He also posted his findings on Reddit. These particular chargers would not destroy the Nexus phones, according to Phone Arena, but it can possibly damage users' phones or other devices if used incorrectly.
The presenter claimed that the charger for the Google Nexus 5X will continue to release a 5V/3A charge as long as it's connected to a power outlet. This is true even if the phone is not connected to the USB end.
Experts have already warned users not to leave their chargers hanging in the wall socket for safety concerns. Furthermore, the Nexus 5X charger is also exclusive to the phone itself. Users should not use the charger to any other device or they run the risk of damaging it, according to Life Hacker.
The charger for the Nexus 6P does not have a continuous output problem like the Nexus 5X. However, the 6P charger does not do well with a smart cord. For example, the iPhone's lightning cable should not be used with this charger. Once these two accessories are plugged into a wall socket, the charger will instantly transfer electricity regardless if there is a device at the other end of the USB cord or not.
For now, it is recommended that users should only stick using the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P chargers with their respective phones only. Other devices and accessories should not be included in the mix, or else, users face the danger of damaging them.
