Mobile blast injuries are increasing in recent times specifically in India. This increase in incidence in recent times is attributed mostly to the usage of cheap, low-quality phone and battery as well as the use of the mobile phone while charging. We are reporting the case of a 10-year-old boy who had met with a mobile phone blast injury to the right hand while he was playing a mobile game during charging. We will also discuss measures to prevent such injury.
