    He should have bit into a Tide Pod, right? WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!?!?
    I would actually say it's YouTube.

    You can make it foolproof, but you can't make it damned foolproof...

    There is the possibility that rather than checking if the battery was genuine, he was actually joking about checking if it was genuine, and didn't expect it to give so much when he bit into it.

    This is not trying to excuse his behaviour, just trying to understand it. No matter the reason it was a stupid thing to do. I mean, he's lucky it didn't blow up in his mouth. All he really has to worry about is if the store is going to charge him for the exploding battery. (Some stores might replace it just as an act of goodwill, but others will no doubt point out that it's entirely his own fault it failed.)

    Great.  Now Apple will have to put a "Do Not Bite" sticker on my phone.  
    LOL but the LOGO has a bite taken out of it!

    Those Chinese really will eat anything! :)

    But seriously...what on earth was he going to prove by biting it?

    Can he tell the difference in taste between an original and 3rd party battery I wonder? :)

    His next test is to deep fry Apple battery and serve over Cho Mein.
