[Video] This Is What Happens When You Poke Your Phone Battery

I had always wanted to know what could actually happen when I poke my phone battery with any sharp object.

Have you been wondering same thing?

Well, if you have then this post should excite you.

Samsung Galaxy S8 battery test

It's been proven that NO MATTER the phone you're using, a defective or improperly handling of its battery can overheat, causing the cells to break open and result in a chain reaction of other cells rupturing.

Whether it has the best battery or the best power, they all work on lithium-ion technology, all rechargeable batteries do.

Eventually when the chain reaction occurs, it goes KA BOOM!!

Now, here is a video clip you should watch. Although it's hilarious, but it's more of a safety tip for both young and old.
Samsung Battery

In this video, a guy practically demonstrated how a phone battery could catch fire, when it is being poked. In the demonstration, a knife was used to poke a Samsung battery.

P.S: Don't try this at home, cos your phone battery would die an everlasting death.

Same thing applies to battery usage of iPhone, it would meet same faith just after the poke stops.

Another question for you;

Have you ever read the protection and safety guides at the back of your battery?

I know most of us usually don't read those stuff, but phone manufacturers advise we do.
