Really scary, spewed black smoke, black carbon dust around, the stench is horrible!
Wow! What model is this? 4, or 4s? All these recent battery threads have me worried.
That's a sight.
Have you spoken to Apple yet?
I'd like to know what they say about this and what they'll do to compensate for your recent issue other than just a new phone.
That's incredible! What were you doing at the time?
Wow, looks like an airbag went off.
For now I'm not doing anymore overnight charging on my 4s. I don't want it to catch on fire while I'm sleeping. There's been way too many reports of fires recently.
Haven't/don't plan on ever charging my 4S overnight. It worries me for some reason, even know many say that it does no harm.
Everything was smooth, the battery was very slightly soft and not even bloated.
After replacing the back case, i realised, it can't fit in smoothly, so i removed the back case to see whats wrong... and then the battery started to bloat up like in really slow mo then.. HISSED and POOOOF spewing dark smoke and the phone was very very hot! the table was burnt as well!
Apple says to wait for their engineers instruction. Still waiting.
So you replaced the back on your phone and then this happened? What model iPhone do you have?
Holy crap...I'm trying really hard right now not to think about what could happen if this was in my pants pocket.
What model was this anyway?
Please note, this was someone opening up their phone, so it's hard to say what may have had an effect on it and caused this.
Did you change anything else? Did you remove the battery?
So with the aftermarket iPhone back, it sounds like it forced the battery or crunched the battery in the casing... is this correct?
I dunno... Everyone freaking out about batteries exploding need to understand the difference between people tinkering and breaking something and something just breaking. Also think of the MILLIONS of other iPhones out there that are charged overnight and don't ever explode.
