Galaxy S5 battery explodes on camera!

Hammer smash test

We've all heard the stories of cellphone batteries exploding, but not many have been caught on video in the wild.

Youtube user TechRax was conducting a torture test on a Samsung Galaxy S5 with a knife and a hammer when the battery literally exploded, spewing heat and chemicals all around.

His startled reaction is priceless, and most would say he got what he deserved, but now at least we can see exploding cellphone batteries are a real thing.

An extreme way to blast away viruses too!

Bang, bang, bang

The video actually shows how well the Galaxy stands up to a tough beating, but in the end it gets its own back:

Here's a tip, TechRax - if you returned the S5 under warranty, don't let Samsung see this video ;-)
