Man Bites iPhone Battery Causing It to Explode! [Video]

Posted January 24, 2018 at 4:04am by iClarified
A man looking to get his iPhone battery replaced at a Chinese electronics store decided to bite the battery to somehow test its authenticity. The battery promptly exploded.

Video of the incident captured by a CCTV camera has been posted on miaopai.com and viewed over four million times, reports Taiwan News. It's likely that the man's teeth ruptured the battery's casing causing it to burst into a massive ball of fire.

Amazingly, no one was hurt in this incident. Take a look at the video below!

It's unclear if the customer was looking to exchange his battery due to Apple's slowdown of devices with degraded batteries. We recommend taking your iPhone to Apple to have an authorized technician replace its battery for $29. If you can't have Apple perform the replacement for whatever reason (timing, jailbreak, location, etc), you can find links to purchase replacement batteries below. Please don't bite them!

The batterie simply selfdestroys, if you trying to uncover it’s authentity. It’s a feature.

battery does not blow up if its not connected to any power source. else people will be using battery instead of grenades.

It will explode, smart guy. It’s full of electricity because guess what, IT’S A BATTERY. Just try that at home.

The battery might explode even if there's no wire connection. It happend to me when i changed my iphone 6 battery. It sparked a couple time when i pulled the battery from the tray. I was unlucky that week. A few days later apple offered new battery change for $29. 😂 For$29, i would rather let apple tech guy to do it. 🙄

you must be some battery expert. lithium reacts very rapidly when exposed to moisture, like saliva or water. this is why you never puncture lithium battery packs

yes smart guy i tried it at home and it did not explode. i just did not bite it instead i used a hammer. it only got stretched and big did not explode. maybe charge the battery and do it and that might happen. why don't you try it?
