Howdy folks! How are you doing?

We have just covered a story on how the Samsung Galaxy S3 exploded, taking down around $200 worth of mattress covers and a bed sheet along with it, not to mention a shock of a Galaxy S3 owner's life. Perhaps it is wise never to charge your handset right beside you when you are sleeping, no?

Care to share with us some safety tips that you take while charging your smartphone overnight so that it will not be a fire hazard should the unexpected happen?

Question #1: Do he use the stock battery?

Question #2: Is the charger original?

One problem with using manufacturers battery is that, as far as I know, Samsung dont make a larger battery with extened back cover to accommodate it. Can anyone reccommend a reliable third party manufacturer that might produce these. It's a nice phone but battery life sucks unless you turn off all connectivity which then makes it a dumb phone!
