7" RCA Tablet - Exploding Battery

63 of 97 Rca reviews

Bought a 7" RCA tablet (RCT6077W22) back on Friday this last Christmas from Wal-mart and it took only 7 months to die.The battery started to grow slowly.

Day after day getting bigger and bigger. RCA tablets must be extraordinarily cheep? What kind of company engineer's a battery that only lasts 7mo?!!

It now looks like a pillow and burst the case wide open! I'm afraid it could exploded at any time, light on fire...

I don't know. Never seen anything like it.

has any one else?I sure hope RCA stands by their products and treats their customers with enough respect and replace any and ALL tablet that are doing this.

the kind of company that won't replace your used equipment or the battery your kids swapped for their used tablet NOR {logic word} . Since you did not RETURN it to RCA OR Overcharged the overheated battery , the T_A_B_L_E_T has become polypropylene, gorilla glass, silver, silicon chips, carbon steel, lithium and NiMH and that gunked up charge port you forgot to clean with the REALLY old cord you have use for the last 5 years,
OH you have a pet , they chew and don't use Franks hot sauce either.

Son got same tablet from Walmart as Christmas present 2014. Battery wouldnt stay charged by 2/2014. 9/14 battery looks like a pillow very dangerous. Called RCA says will replace but have to go to website and they will call you back about it to say what will be done. RCA said lots of complaints on this and battery exploding too. But no recalls listed anywhere online. Said take away from child very dangerous. Seriously?

Same thing happened to my daughters tablets and it's going on close to 1 yr. I'm very thankful it didn't happen while she was using it... My fear is that it will fully explored and who knows that damage that can do, so I keep it out of her reach.. Has anyone contacted them regarding this issue & if so what was the outcome.

I can't believe it. My RCA tablet is the same. It is popped open on one side. What the heavens. This is ridiculous. Guaranteed I have had it for over a year, but to on a whim pop open. I've had enough. Don't count on me being a returning customer, for any RCA product.

This is crazy I have only used this tablet like 10 times in the year I have had it. I went to get it and the back had separated from the tablet. I don't think the thing was put on the charger more the two or three times. I think rca should have to do something about this it is potentially dangerous to the children that most of the parents bought these tablets for. The biggest joy of it is I have to wait for the next seven of these tablets that I bought to do the same thing. So I look at it like this its a $600 waste for me to find out that the batteries in these things are going to explode.

do you know how to have them send you the replacement? mine lasted a good 6-7 months and then I let it charge and it blew open in my face. I called the replacement number and it said to check their website, did that and it had nothing to do about the tablets. text me at 1-816-839-5755 for Landon Schroeder and let me know if you can. Thank you.
