I can think of only a few scenarios where it’s appropriate to bite objects that aren't food in public. It’s okay to do it if you’re a toddler who happens to be teething or is curious about what some toy tastes like, or perhaps you're a gold miner inspecting your newfound fortune. But neither example includes biting into an iPhone battery to verify it’s authentic.
Only idiots do that. And when they do, there’s always a theoretical chance that the battery will explode. Luckily, there’s a video of such a case from China that resulted in the battery going up in flames. Thankfully, nobody was hurt.
