The popularity of mobile power has become a well-known thing. In the sales of 35.019 billion yuan announced by Taobao Double 11 on the same day, only the mobile power supply sold as a single product, and the number of products sold has reached one million. Attention. However, compared with the popularity of sales, the frequent occurrence of accidents can not help but make a question mark on the security of mobile power.
A few days ago, "Yangtze Evening News" exposed consumers to use a certain brand of mobile power, there was a spontaneous combustion phenomenon, the event was reprinted by the media, immediately caused the attention of the mobile power industry and consumers. According to the report, Miss Wang, a brand mobile power source purchased by Taobao in the Dazhou Digital franchise store in Guangzhou, suddenly made a “beep” sound in the mobile phone of the shopping bag, and Miss Wang took the mobile power out of the package. For a moment, I was on fire. Fortunately, no casualties were caused. I only burned a large hole in the bag.
Shortly after the incident was exposed, the Shanghai Quality Supervision Department also began to pay attention to the quality of mobile power. Then, 22 batches of mobile power samples were sampled, and 13 of them were in safety. During the test, some were Mobile power supplies even burst, fire, etc., such products seriously threaten the personal safety of consumers, which also includes some well-known brand products.
Unsafe incidents caused by the quality of mobile power are frequent, and accidents have caused great concern in the industry.
Mercy is a picture, hidden and greasy
"Buy the incoming call core, the circuit board, and then install the upper casing, and immediately assemble it into a mobile power supply." Liao Linwei, head of Zhongshan Pineng Battery Co., Ltd. told reporters. Due to the relatively concentrated mobile power industry chain, in the absence of technology, it is easy to complete the assembly of a mobile power supply by purchasing only the corresponding components. Coupled with the large gap in the mobile power market, profits are as high as 50%, attracting a large number of manufacturers to enter the industry.
Behind the hot industry, there is a lot of tricks hidden. The main components of mobile power are the battery, circuit board, and housing. In terms of batteries, it is mainly divided into 18650 lithium ion batteries and polymer batteries. The polymer is safer and more powerful than the 18650, but at a slightly higher price. Most of the batteries used in mobile power supplies currently on the market are 18,650. According to the reporter, 18650 batteries are classified into Class A batteries and Class B batteries according to their quality. Class A batteries refer to new products produced by regular manufacturers, and their quality is safe and reliable. Class B batteries mainly refer to recycled used batteries and foreign garbage batteries. The quality and safety of such batteries are not guaranteed. Class A and Class B, in addition to the quality difference, the price is also about 50%, which is also the catty of the cottage manufacturers to pursue profiteering. According to statistics, in the past, most of the mobile power spontaneous combustion events used 18650 B-type batteries.
Wang Zhibin, an expert on new energy research at the Department of Chemistry, Nanjing University, told the reporter, "The main component of 18650 lithium ion is electrolyte, and the electrolyte is an organic compound. If you use inferior products, you will get high heat when you encounter high temperature, collision and charging. Cause spontaneous combustion or explosion."
On the circuit board side, there are also some problems that cannot be ignored. Is the phone charging stable? Can I protect the phone from charging? These are all integrated on this seemingly small but critical circuit board. Earlier, a domestic user posted on Weibo that it used mobile power to charge the mobile phone, and the black screen of the mobile phone has no display content. Later, after professional testing, it was discovered that when the mobile power source charged the mobile phone, the current was too large and the mobile phone was burned out.
In terms of the outer casing, “the cottage manufacturers often use the “public model” in order to save costs and increase profit margins. This is why there are so many mobile power supplies in Huaqiangbei and Taobao.” Wu Yijie, the person in charge of mobile power, told reporters, "The price of a male model shell is only three or five yuan, and even more than one or two yuan can be bought. If you want to develop a private model, From the shape design to the mold opening cost is three to five thousand, the high is three or five hundred thousand. In addition to the aesthetic appearance of the mobile power supply, it is more important to protect the battery core and prevent electromagnetic radiation. Therefore, its structure, material selection and thickness are of vital importance. The "male mold" housing is difficult to handle.
Emerging markets, embattled
The mobile power market is an emerging industry. Although the market prospects are unquestionable, the brand trust crisis is increasing. Faced with the huge cake of mobile power, domestic manufacturers flocked. According to incomplete statistics, there are more than 5,000 mobile power manufacturers in China, and among these manufacturers, there are less than 300 mobile power brands, most of which are cottage manufacturers. However, behind the rapid expansion, there are hidden hidden dangers. Some black-hearted manufacturers, also known as cottage mobile power manufacturers, completely ignore the safety of consumers, blindly pursue profiteering, ignoring product quality, and no brand guarantee. In the face of hot mobile power, who will protect the interests of consumers?
Difficulties, where is the road?
A lively case can be described as shocking. The artifact that should have made our life more pleasant and convenient has become a powerful weapon for the wounded. Unfortunately, consumers who bought these products have to bear the double body and mind. Strike, ask a consumer who is "fried" by mobile power, will he still have a good impression on it? Still dare to use mobile power? Will it still be considered essential? One pass and ten hundred pass, the power of human words is better than everything, and the eyes of the masses are sharp. The panic about the quality of mobile power will trigger a greater crisis of trust, which will directly affect the healthy development of some mobile power manufacturers. According to data analysis, some companies have already faced bankruptcy. If you don't want a solution, the entire mobile power market will be devastated, and the consequences will be disastrous!
Recently, the reporter interviewed some consumers randomly, and most of the respondents have demand for mobile power. But when choosing to buy mobile power, a common voice appears on these consumers. "In the market, there are a lot of mobile power on the network, the price is different, the capacity is from 2000mAh to 50000mAh. I really don't know how to choose when buying?"
There are confusions, not only consumers, but also agents. According to Mr. Chen, an agent in Zhengzhou, “I have been in the Zhengzhou technology market for more than ten years. I used to do cell phone batteries and related accessories in the early days, but now there is no market for batteries. I see that mobile power is very hot. I want to do some mobile power agent, but how to choose so many products and brands? After all, mobile power is dangerous. If something goes wrong, then you can't eat it."
Facing the confusion of consumers and agents, the reporter contacted Mr. Zhang Wei, the general manager of Scud Battery Co., Ltd. When the reporter throws out the chaos of the current industry, what kind of influence will it have on the manufacturer, Mr. Zhang Wei also said that he is confused as a manufacturer. "As a well-known brand, Scud has been the leader in the mobile phone battery industry in its early years. Mainly because of its safe and reliable quality. Nowadays, the mobile power supply Scud also adheres to the principle of quality first, and is responsible to consumers. After all, the inferior mobile power supply is dangerous. However, in the face of some bad competition in the current market. For example, the virtual standard, the use of inferior batteries, etc., the Scud's sales in the mobile power supply is also greatly affected, but the Scud will not reduce the quality requirements, but more attention, only this Scud brand can stand out, deep People's hearts are flourishing. We believe that the mobile power market is now disorderly, manufacturers can't operate healthily, and development is difficult, and the mobile power industry will face shuffling."
In the face of the crisis, we really can't do anything about it? In the face of the huge mobile power market, do we really want to watch it being dragged down by some black-hearted unscrupulous vendors? Can we really not change? Where is the long road to mobile power? We would like to ask the competent authorities to ask the experts of the industry associations and ask the leading companies when they can give consumers a guarantee of rights and a satisfactory solution.
