Apple is investigating why one AirPod caught on fire in Florida

Florida man says Apple Air Pod earphone blew

A man's AirPods exploded while he was at the gym YouTube/News Channel 8 A man's AirPods have exploded while he was at the gym. A search of Apple's support forums turned up two reports of AirPods growing warm or hot after 30 minutes of use.

The Tampa resident set the earphones down on a piece of gym equipment to get help, but the right AirPod had shattered by the time he returned.

Colon suspects a faulty battery is behind the incident - according to Apple, a failed electronic battery can lead to internal damage and overheating. When he came back, the smoking AirPod had already seemingly blown up. Colon said other users should be careful with the AirPods, saying "Just because it happens to me doesn't mean it won't happen again".

"It's the craziest thing I ever went through", Colon said. "It was already popped", said Colon. "I didn't see it happen but it was already fried". "I don't know what would've happened to my ear, but I'm sure since it hangs down, it could've been [my] earlobe".

Meanwhile, an Apple spokesperson told media that they are investigating the matter and will reach out to Colan to figure out exactly what happened to the wearable.
