The video of the incident captured by the CCTV cameras of the store was uploaded to Chinese video sharing platform Miaopai, since then it has got 4.69 million views.

That's because damaging a battery can cause it to short circuit and spark a buildup of heat, according to Battery University, a go-to resource on how lithium-ion cells work. Within seconds, the battery, which was only inches away from his and other onlookers' faces, explodes as the group recoils due to the blinding flash of the blast.

Taiwan News reported that the customer's teeth may have caused a rupture in the battery's casing.

A man wanted to test the quality of an iPhone battery in a store in China-so naturally, he bit it.

But Chinese electronics stores are infamous for stocking fake components. While counterfeit or faulty batteries are prone to catching fire or exploding, biting a battery is not going to reveal its durability or authenticity - and most batteries will explode if sufficiently damaged.

It is uncertain if the quality of the battery had anything to do with the explosion or if it was just the pressure. We recommend taking your iPhone to Apple to have an authorized technician replace its battery for $29. This isn't a piece of gold that you can test in this way.
