The current devices are quite difficult to repair , especially those from Apple, although I managed to get past the big brands. This is the price to Apgar for lighter, thinner, dust and water resistant devices.
That’s why changing something as delicate as a battery should only be left in the hands of professionals if you don’t want what happened to this user who tried to change his iPhone’s battery to happen to you.
According to a user posted on reddit, the battery on his iPhone exploded while he was trying to replace it with a new one. Apparently the battery was swollen and defective and exploded while trying to replace it.
” The battery had been replaced by a co-worker who originally owned the phone, this battery was not original and appeared to be defective . The battery was swelling up when I started charging the device and he was taking it apart to see what was happening “.
Everything was recorded on video and shows us why we should not make this kind of arrangement at home . The batteries have lithium ions and are very delicate, much more so than they seem, and especially if they are swollen. The iFixit itself warns: ” An inflamed lithium-ion battery can catch fire or explode. Proceed with extreme caution “.
In addition to not trying to change the battery of a bloated iPhone at home, it is also not advisable to step on it in the video to extinguish the flames. This combustion can exceed 500 degrees centigrade and you could suffer serious burns. In addition, the gases are very toxic so it is best to move away and try to put it out with a fire extinguisher at a safe distance.
