This isn’t the first case of a Nord 2 exploding that we have heard. In September, a lawyer’s Nord 2 unit allegedly caught fire and exploded inside the court chamber. The lawyer, Gaurav Gulati, did not submit the unit to OnePlus, which led the company to send a cease and desist notice to him.

In October, another user claimed that his Nord 2 charging adapter exploded, which OnePlus later said was caused due to voltage fluctuations. 

The latest incident, however, should put\ a spotlight on OnePlus to investigate thoroughly into the matter and initiate a recall if there’s something wrong with the Nord 2.
