We hope that the replacement program will run smoothly and we hope to get more details from Globe and Smart for updates about their replacement program. This recent mishap is definitely a lesson that even giant companies like Samsung could damage a company because of manufacturing mistakes. But we believe this is an awakening not only for the brand but also for the industry to challenge innovators for a safer and long-lasting battery source.
