Samsung Galaxy S8 Battery Won’t Explode Even If You Stab It
  • Even stabbing the new Samsung Galaxy S8 won’t explode its battery!

Unlike the Note 7 the new smartphone by Samsung is so safe even a knife couldn’t make it catch fire

Ever since Samsung announced the release of the new Galaxy S8 everyone has been wondering how safe will it be? Considering the last smartphone released by Samsung blew up when its battery overheated.

To all those wondering a video uploaded by the popular YouTube channel "What's Inside?" in collaboration with Jerry Rig Everything has given the answer.

It seems the new Galaxy S8 is so safe not even stabbing it with a knife can make it explode. Compared to the infamous Galaxy Note 7 the new Galaxy S8, is not only beautifully designed with enhanced performance, but its battery pack is the safest yet by Samsung.

Back in January Samsung did announce they will carry out an 8-point battery safety check for all their future smartphones. The new check meant all their future phone batteries would go through extreme testing including procedures such as x-ray and human inspection checks.

The YouTube channel What's Inside is famous for cutting up products to see what is inside of them. In their now famous uploaded video they can be seen prying off the glass back of the new Galaxy S8 and then cut through the back of the phone where the battery is situated.

When punctured with the sharp blade, the battery can be seen only smoking and expanding. Although lithium-ion oozes out of the battery there is no inflammatory reaction.

Normally when a lithium-ion battery is punctured, seeing sparks and flames is normal. But Samsung’s new batteries are so safe then don’t even catch fire upon being stabbed. The video does warn people not to take this example and start cutting up their new Samsung phones at home.
