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.

I wonder if they will put a warning label on them now? "Do not eat!
Don't eat Tide Pods.
Don't eat cell phone batteries.

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...
