    Well, as long as you don't put the device in any body orifices, you should be safe. ;)
    That being said, I hope someone tells the manufacturer of those batteries to shove them up their a$$... :D

    That phone looks like it's about 10 years old.... and from the worn paint... it's been used a lot.
    So the lesson is probably.... don't use a crap phone.... for a LONG time.

    No offense, but that doesn't look like it exploded at all. Looks like it overheated and melted everything. While that sucks, using old technology like that it's no wonder it happened.

    eww....

    I still lol a bit every time I see that name. I love how we've had like 10 different exploding things in the past year involving batteries (although, mostly laptops).
