The user kept posting updates about the incident on his thread. Apparently, OnePlus suggested him to visit the nearest customer care centre and he did so.

After running tests on the submitted charger, he was told that the explosion could be due to a power surge and they would replace the charger. In the following thread, he also mentioned that a representative from OnePlus called him to inquire about the entire incident and later emphasized on voltage fluctuation being the issue.

Continuing to tweet updates on the incident, yesterday, Jimmy wrote that a technician from OnePlus who examined the images of the exploded charger explained to him over a phone call that what happened was not a blast; there was nothing in the charger to blast.



However, after 3 days of reporting the issue, the user yesterday collected a replaced charger from the customer care centre and shared about it on his tweet thread.
