IPhone battery explodes in man's mouth

Seeing as it exploded that way, no one really knows now whether the battery was really a battery or not - or if the incident did ever occur.

We here at MobileSyrup would like to advise you to not bite your iPhone battery - no matter what.

Footage of the incident, said to have taken place on Friday, went viral on social media. The battery burst into flames. As a result, many iPhone owners began to look into replacing their device's batteries - either via Apple's discounted program, or through third-parties.

According to Taiwan News, the man went to an electronics store on January 19 for a battery replacement. Newsweek reports that this explosion comes just two weeks after an Apple Store in Zurich, Switzerland, had to be evacuated due to an iPhone battery overheating and exploding.

Per Chinese-language site Sina Tech, a man bit an iPhone battery in a computer parts shop in an attempt to verify that it was actually a battery.

A man at an electronics store in China chose to give a smartphone battery his own litmus test by biting it. Local media in Switzerland said that 50 workers and customers had to leave the store and one fix worker required treatment for burns. The dubious customer, who appeared to be with his wife or girlfriend, therefore insisted on checking the status of the battery - and decided that biting it would prove whether it was real or fake.

The authenticity of a smartphone battery cannot be verified like that of a gold coin.

An Iphone 7 Plus is displayed at Puerta del Sol Apple Store on September 16, 2016 in Madrid, Spain.
