My Cube Tablet (aka Chuwi clone) made this weird popping sound

It was loud like popcorn popping: Pop... pop..... pop....... pop!!

I thought it was the battery exploding, so I immediately shut down.

Next day, I opened the back cover (didn't know you could do this with just your fingernails) to examine the battery. Seems perfectly fine with no puffing.

Was able to charge it up 100% no problems.

When the pop happened, speakers were on, and it could have come from them.

Anyways, has anyone had this happen to them? Should I be worried?


(P.S: Most of u should realize exploding Samsung lithium batteries come from India/Vietnam. Chinese lithium battery powering my Cube tablet, so at least I know to trust these enough to give my battery a test charge as per above...)
