USCG warns on Samsung Galaxy Note 7s

The US Coast Guard (USCG) has strongly recommended the immediate “powering down” and ending all use of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones, following a recommendation from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) banning the recalled devices from aeroplanes, starting on October 15th, 2016.

USCG said that  maritime operators should review potential fire hazards related to the recall, especially for operations that include checked baggage or unattended vehicles as on ferries.
