Sometimes the Apple products we hold in our hands hold more secrets than we first thought. For example, our own Mac can save our life . Although it’s a pretty fragile machine, its battery can withstand the impact of a bullet. In this article we tell you the famous legend surrounding this idea.
It is not the most common thing that a bullet is directed against oneself when we are walking on the street, but unfortunately in 2007 in Brazil a MacBook user faced the same death . It seems that this user we have mentioned was the victim of a mugging and when faced with the refusal to give in, the mugger pulled the trigger of his gun. In these cases, instinct dictates that one should cover oneself with the first thing at hand, and in this case it was his MacBook.
The surprise was that the bullet hit the battery of the equipment and did not go through it saving the life of the user. But the assumption did not remain here as it seems the equipment continued to function normally as if it had not been hit by any bullet. This is a clear indication that this is a really strong battery that can withstand any kind of impact like a bullet. Beyond saving us from a gunfight, if we want to use it as a shield, this makes us think that our Mac battery won’t break easily with all the problems that come with it.
We must bear in mind that with the batteries you have to be very careful. Any kind of impact they suffer can cause them to swell and even explode. That’s why Apple has made sure it has an extremely strong battery in its computers to prevent major problems such as explosion. But it seems they’ve gone way overboard in this respect because they’ve reached the limit that a bullet can’t go through our Mac battery.
Obviously this is a ‘legend’ and has not really been proven because it is also not very helpful to know if we can use the Mac as a shield in case of a shooting. What is clear is that there are many details around our computers that we do not get to know but thanks to these legends we can finally know them.
And you, have you been forced to use the Mac as a bullet shield? Leave your impressions in the comment box.
