Samsung limits Galaxy Note 7 battery to 30% charge

Samsung is planning to update the Galaxy Note 7 smartphones that are still in use despite a fire risk, to prevent them being charged past 30%.The update aims to encourage the few owners who have not yet returned the faulty devices to hand them in.
