This is why you shouldn't bite an iPhone battery

Man Causes Explosion in Electronics Store After Biting iPhone Battery

It was unclear if the replacement battery was an authentic Apple product. It resulted in a small explosion, fortunately hurting none of them present over there.

Despite the explosion, Taiwan News reports that no one was injured from the incident.

A man looking to get his iPhone battery replaced at a Chinese electronics store made a decision to bite the battery to somehow test its authenticity. It shows the man bringing an iPhone battery up to his face, then biting it, and as he removes the battery from his mouth, it explodes.

iPhone has been offering to replace the older batteries with new ones at just $29 instead of the usual $79.




"The battery is not gold, why are you biting it?" a Chinese netizen joked. You can watch the video here.

It's a problem associated with knockoff battery chargers and other dubious third-party accessories that are rampant in China, which may have explained why the man was biting the battery in the first place. According to the site Digital Trends, there are three primary ways to trigger a smartphone battery malfunction: overheating, overcharging, and applying large amounts of pressure to the device. The battery explodes. You're probably thinking that this can't be real.

Taiwan News reported that the customer's teeth may have caused a rupture in the battery's casing.
