If you’re a user of Android or Apple devices you probably know that they come equipped with lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are pretty reliable, but one important thing to note is that if you allow the batteries to fully discharge too often they become unstable, and they can explode like this one did.
Ok, maybe your cell phone won’t explode like that, but it pays to be cautious when it comes to your battery health. Learning how to take care of your battery can prevent explosions, but it’s good practice to take care of them for the long term health of your devices. This is especially important as manufacturers are sealing batteries inside of the devices, like Samsung did with the Galaxy Note 5 and S6.
