I doubt it, probably defective batteries in those units.

My 2016 Nissan Versa that I bought new. Had less than 5000 miles. Sat parked for 5 hours. Then caught fire and burned. The fire started in the center dash area. Where my radio and heat/air is. Nissan says I overloaded the circuit charging a portable DVD player. I had a 12v phone charger plugged into the power port which is located between the seats not in the dash area. And an overloaded circuit caused the fire. I don't think so.
