See What Happens When Someone Inspects an iPhone by Biting Into It

A man decided to bite into an iPhone at a shop in Nanjing, China. The video shows what happens next.

Apparently, the man was concerned with the authenticity of the device, thinking that using his teeth was the best way to verify he wasn’t buying a counterfeit.

As for the outcome of his test, it’s all in the video. He’ll probably want to use other means to inspect his electronics the next time he goes shopping.

Dangerous substances in cell phone batteries that shouldn’t mix are only separated by a thin barrier, Android Central reported. Biting into them and breaking that separation can have the effect you see in the video. Fortunately, no one was hurt this time.
