Exploding iPhone battery?

Darren Whipps Asked: Exploding iPhone battery?

I bought a second hand iPhone and the battery seems to have swollen!! Is this normal? I have thrown it out because I am worried it will explode, it looked irreparable anyway since the case had split right open!!


Alan Answered:
it's less likely to explode, but it may leak and damage the iPhone

When Li-On batteries were being developed, the were placed in bomb proof containers, as the did go bang.
The battery had probably been deep discharged, and then re-charged. A sure way to ruin a Li-On battery.
