Don't bite your iPhone battery like this guy; it can explode

  • Don't bite your iPhone battery like this guy; it can explode

A Chinese man, who was looking for a replacement battery for his iPhone at an electronics store, caused the component to explode in his face as he chose to bite into it to somehow test its authenticity. In all likelihood, it would have been a lithium-ion battery, as those are known for being a little volatile and the usual type used as an iPhone battery. Not just because it's risky but because it wouldn't prove anything. Other products you shouldn't bite include Gossip Girl DVDs and the Google Chromecast.

A video recently surfaced of an explosion after a man bites an iPhone battery in a Chinese electronics store.

A propensity to overheat isn't the only issue with the iPhone's battery, however, after recent news that Apple was taking steps to slow older iPhones down due to the possibility of a crash. It only takes a few seconds for the battery to explode, which proves that biting a battery is never a good idea.

The man offered the explanation for this freaky act that if people can bite into coins to check if they are real or not then the same can be followed to check an iPhone’s reliability.

Despite the man's close proximity to the exploded component, there was no reports of injuries.

An iPhone user in Nanjing City, China visited an electronics store to replace the battery of his device.

As a show of good faith, Apple is offering cheap battery replacements to all users with compatible handsets, but is now experiencing stock shortages.

To address customers' concerns, the company has slashed the price of iPhone battery replacements from $79 (£56) to $29 for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later. But like we said, people are eating Tide Pods so need reminding.
