The website XDA-Developers.com said it received a return kit from Samsung, and the precautions the company has you take are kind of intense. In a video posted to XDA's YouTube channel, Brandon Miniman shows off the Russian doll-like return kit complete with included gloves and a thermally insulated box.
"A lithium ion battery subject to a recall must be shipped in accordance with the US Department of Transportation regulations," said a Samsung spokesperson on Wednesday. "These special boxes are required by government regulations."
If you're returning the device and have chosen to mail it back, Samsung will send you a prepaid shipping package. Until then? Take it out of your jeans pocket, unless of course your jeans are thermally insulated and fireproof.
