After examining it, he inexplicably decides to put the battery in his mouth and bite it (supposedly to "test its authenticity", Taiwan News reported). When the man bites an iPhone battery, it explodes and catches fire.
The man offered the explanation for this freaky act that if people can bite into coins to check if they are real or not then the same can be followed to check an iPhoneâ€™s reliability.

A ten second clip of the explosion when the man bites an iPhone battery is included below, and has been circulating around Chinese social media.

The incident took place on Friday, January 19, which was caught on the CCTV of the store and was later posted to maiopai.com which has almost five million views.

IBTimes India was unable to independently verify if it was indeed an iPhone battery that exploded due to blunt force. Also, he is not purchasing the battery from the official Apple Store.
