A shopper in China recently learned that biting a smartphone battery isn’t exactly the best way to test its authenticity.

According to a report from Taiwan News, a man entered an electronics store in China on January 19 in search of a replacement battery for his iPhone. Seemingly suspecting the battery on offer was fake, he inexplicably decided to bite into the unit to see if it was real. Much to his surprise, the battery was indeed legitimate as evident by the fact that it exploded upon being punctured.

You bite it, you bought it i suppose.


This kind of special Human being really does illustrate the premise of natural selection rather eloquently through. LoL

The said thing is that the woman standing next to him in the white coat appears to have received the worst of the blast.
She walks away dazed and staring at the floor afterwards while he seems relatively unscathed. What an idiot.

Think it was this guy.

Apparently, he's not big on apologizing through.

I've seen some people do some pretty done things in my life but if this is real this guy gets the idiot award. You have to be beyond stupid for this. Flag and good thread as a warning for anyone else who might think of it. My best,

Yep, Lithium an Oxygen really don't get along very well, or too well, as the case may be.

I wonder if they will put a warning label on them now? "Do not eat!

Hey kids....
Don't eat Tide Pods.
Don't eat cell phone batteries.

They don't seem to like moisture all that much either.

And I guess he didn't read the warning sticker.

Or maybey he's just one of those people who think warnings don't apply to them.

But he's probably one of many who can't think and doesn't read.

He will probably not survive himself, one way or the other. Dumbness always pays off.

Tell you this, that poor lady will be wanting her eyebrows back.

Surprised none of them were badly burned really.

Imagine it was a key or the like that punctured the thing in your pocket though? Combined with the skinny jeans that are doing the rounds, and the contact against the skin, and that's quite possibly 3rd-degree burns.

Horrible to think we carry around such energy in our pockets, and not in a good way.

How does one tell real or fake by biting it?

Is there a certain taste? Did he expect jelly to come out if it was fake? Was he expecting a plastic feel if fake? Wtf...

Watch now, iPhone is going to have to put a do not bite warning on their batteries so bozo's like this don't blow their mouth off.

Just like the McDonalds coffee warning: caution! Hot!
Idiots

Lithium Vindaloo springs to mind, a glass of water afterward is maybe not a good idea all the same.

If they didn't want us drinking dishwasher pods and antifreeze they shouldn't make them so tasty!

I'll make the same argument for huffing a few lungfuls at the gas station mmm
