Just why would you one day think it’s a good idea to make holes in your phone battery by stabbing it with a knife?

Well one man attempted to see what happened by doing exactly that.

Phone Battery Explodes

The video, which has had over 200,000 views on YouTube in less than a week, shows a man piercing the phone battery on the floor.

After a couple of stabs, fumes start erupting from the battery as it suddenly explodes.

There has been speculation that the video may be fake, or the person who did it knew where to prod the battery to make it erupt.

Watch the video below. No-one should try this at home.
