Watch the EXPLOSIVE moment a phone battery is stabbed with a kitchen knife A lithium ion battery inside a phone bursts into flames when it's perforated with a kitchen knife in this viral video Stabbing a phone battery with a knife might not be the smartest thing to do with your spare time. But as this video shows, the results can be pretty spectacular - and dangerous. One particularly brave knife-wielding smartphone user decided to do exactly that - all in the name of making a funny YouTube video. Most smartphones and tablets use lithium ion batteries because they're lightweight, powerful and durable. They're also pressurised because they contain flammable electrolytes (substances that carry ionised particles) that sometimes catch fire when they become overheated. Or, in this case, attacked with cutlery. Watch the video above for the full show and stay tuned for the follow-up which will no doubt feature a hairdryer being used in the shower.
