Idiotic man’s mouth got exploded due to biting a battery to check whether the battery was real or fake
Until now, the video has gained more than 5 million views thanks to this man “funny” way to test battery.

In case you were considering biting into your cell phone battery, one man recently illustrated why you should definitely not do that.

The incident took place at a counter of an electronics mall in China. The man was reportedly looking to replace his iPhone battery and decided to test out the authenticity of one of the batteries by biting into it like people usually bite gold to test whether it is fake or not

      The shop’s CCTV shows the man putting the battery up to his lips, taking a quick bite, the battery immediately blew off.

Luckily, he removed the battery from his mouth in time so there were no severe injuries to his mouth.

However, the explosion came with a ball of fire which frightened him, workers, and other customers.

Fortunately, no one was hurt by the explosion, but few other details can be found about the incident, according to the local news.

Until now, the video has gained more than 5 million views thanks to this man “funny” way to test battery.

While Chinese electronics shops have been known to carry a fake product or two, the man’s method of authentication leaves much to be desired. It’s impossible to know if the battery exploded because it was a cheaply-made knockoff or because he managed to chomp through its casing.

NOTE: Please do not try this at home and treat your phone’s battery with extreme caution. If you are unsure about the authenticity of your phone battery and wish to check it, you could visit your mobile phone’s brand shop for the same.

How to spot fake batteries?

Appearance

Most mobile phone batteries look very similar, making it difficult to identify legitimate and fake products.

If you are able to inspect the product first-hand then you should look for signs of poor quality such as: inaccurate printing, misspelled wording, crooked label placement and signs of defective workmanship.

Some mobile phone manufacturers also place hologram stickers on their batteries, which are difficult to replicate by counterfeiters - although they do try.

Warranty

All genuine mobile phone manufacturers offer a limited warranty that covers the handset, software and accessories.

Most genuine accessories are covered for a certain period of time from the date of purchase by the original owner.

Registered manufacturers and sellers also offer customer support and servicing of damaged products.

Black market batteries and chargers rarely come with a warranty or offer customer support and servicing of damaged products.

It is important to keep the receipt for any mobile phone accessory you purchase so that you can make a warranty claim if the product is faulty. It is also beneficial to keep all proof of purchase in case you have bought a fake so that you can notify the relevant authorities.

Price

If the price sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

Counterfeit mobile phone batteries and chargers are made from cheap substandard components allowing them to be produced at a fraction of the price of genuine products.

Also, counterfeiters don’t have to invest in product research, design and safety testing. They don’t pay government taxes, import fees and are not bound by fair trade or minimum wage regulations for their employees.

All these factors mean fakes can be sold at a much lower price than a genuine product. (Cre: Spotfakephone)
