iPhone 4/4S ‘self combusts’ in airliner inferno

On an airline that’s actually serving the great country of Australia these days, an iPhone 4 decided enough was enough. Shortly after Regional Express flight ZL319 landed in Sydney from Lismore, “a passenger’s mobile phone started emitting a significant amount of dense smoke, accompanied by a red glow.” What happened next is a bit of an Aussie mystery, but it seems at some point that the glow was “extinguished successfully.” No one onboard was harmed, and the handset in question has been handed over to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau for “analysis.” It suffered only mild reception issues prior to its final collapse, and if faced with a similar situation, Siri reportedly stated that it would consult a therapist before discharging hot fury.

I have heard many complaints about iPhone 4/4S batteries getting worse over time.  Please see our external batteries to keep your iPhone juiced up:

As Reviewed: Mili Power Pack 4 with Kickstand 3000 mAh for iPhone 4/4S

David W. Martin of CultofMac reviewed the MiLi Power Pack 4, and noted:

The Mili works just fine as an alternative power supply for your iPhone 4 or 4S, but it doesn’t offer the same level of protection that other slider power cases do.  If you are careful and not prone to dropping things then the Mili might be a good case for you, but if you drop things a lot or you want something with more protection then you might consider something else.

David is spot on the good and bad of Power Pack 4.  It’s designed to give maximum battery life to iPhone 4/4S, and the little kickstand offers great convenience, but it doesn’t offer protection to the top of your iPhone 4/4S.
