Do you want to replace an iPhone battery that has slightly inflated? The Apple Store will refuse to do so at once – instead you will offer to send the device to a special center. Replace this type of crash battery is really extremely dangerous as this video shows.
Changing the iPhone battery nowadays is an almost trivial operation: just go to the Apple Store, or the "corner" driver (without offense to the company) and the battery is usually replaced on a day or even after a few hours. But there is a case in which the repair can be much longer: this is when the battery of your smartphone shows swelling signs.

I can reach 2000 ° C and it's better to cover it with sand (water is not recommended if it's a lot of lithium reacts very violently with it). Others suggest the unhappy repairer that he will control his lungs – the smoke of the batteries is particularly toxic. We understand why the Apple Store prefers to put these devices into firewall packages before sending them to better-equipped centers.

However, there are comments that are recommended – probably only for the title -, make the difference. The right to fix electronic devices is a really sensitive theme in the US. Apple is one of the most ferocious companies for third party repairs. One of the company's arguments is that the repairs itself can be dangerous to the user. What seems to show this video – while similar cases are probably not so numerous.
