Most times when a smartphone battery explodes, it's because the battery was damages as a result of some type of impact.

A surveillance video from an undisclosed fix shop in Las Vegas shows an iPhone exploding, according to a report from CBS New York. This of course happens from time to time, but there's something special about this particular incident: It was captured on video. Smartphones have had their share of battery fires as well.

Not only can it lead to explosions in extreme cases, but it can also shorten the life of your battery.

It's much more common for the screen to crack due to a bloated battery than for the phone to combust, Paul Tartaglio, the owner of Gadget Repair, said. But the notion that a healthy battery can explode if you leave your phone in the sun or if you keep it plugged into a charger for too long is ridiculous.
