Fresh information suggest that it will be equipped with heat pipes that the will prevent its battery from overheating at high temperatures.

LG has confirmed that it has employed heat pipes made up of copper that can dissipate the internal heat. It is the same technology that is used in the batteries of PCs and notebooks that decreases the internal temperature by 6 to 10 percent. Moreover, LG has been designed the G6 in such a way that the internal components that heat up remain as far apart as possible to prevent the concentration of heat at one place.

An LG official has said that, “We are conducting battery heat exposure tests to a temperature 15 percent higher than the temperature set by the international standards of the US and Europe.” He also added that the company is carrying various kinds of vigorous tests on the battery such as using a sharp nail to pierce and dropping a heavy object on it from a high place.
