This is what happens when you bake a fake battery at 130-C
In our article yesterday, we showed you the disadvantages of using fake batteries in your smartphones, some of which is the lack of safety features and poor quality. In the video below we will show you how a fake battery reacts when subjected to high temperatures.
The video was sent to us by Cherry Mobile’s partner factory in Shenzhen – CKY Electronics. As mentioned in our previous article, they also have a thermal shock test to see how batteries react to high temperatures. This machine is basically an oven for electronics.
For this test, they placed a fake battery and an original Cherry Mobile battery in the oven and baked it for 1 hour in 130-degree C temperature. Watch what happens below. (Fake battery on the left, original battery on the right.)
As you have seen in the video, the fake battery exploded in about 30 minutes while the original battery is still intact like nothing happened. It is unlikely though that the battery still works, but at least we know now that original batteries don’t simply explode in extreme conditions.
