Samsung's Quick Note 7 Fix

If you have a Galaxy Note 7 and don't want to send it for Samsung for a fix, there are ways that you may be able to keep your device from exploding. The answer? Don't charge it more than 60%. That's a weak solution, but apparently it will work as the issue comes from weak cells that get too hot and overcharged.

Samsung plans to begin issuing new Note 7s with batteries it says will not be prone to overheating starting Sept. 19 in South Korea. It recalled 2.5 million of the devices just two weeks after their launch after dozens of cases in which batteries exploded or caught fire. Samsung says the problem stems from a manufacturing glitch in the batteries.
