Look ma, no ear

Reuters reports:
At least five mobile phones have exploded over the last two months in Brazil, causing anxiety among phone users and making news headlines.

The incidents, representing only a fraction of the 89 million phones in circulation in Brazil, all involved Motorola phones.
Motorola, by and by, has said that "the probable cause of the explosion was that the owners used non-original or low-quality batteries."

All our politicians should instantly be given some Motorola phones from Brazil, with free non-original batteries, for official use (for once, I won't complain about the waste of taxpayers' money). That's how you turn a defect into a feature.
