Thread: 3GS Battery Exploded?
05-20-2010, 12:58 PM #13GS Battery Exploded?
Last night I plugged my launch day 3gs in to charge while I slept, business as usual but when I woke up this morning my alarms hadn't gone off and I noticed some discoloration at the bottom left of the display and the back was insanely hot. No response from any combination of home/power button (no DFU no nothing) The dock connector also shows some greenish discoloration consistent with battery type corrosion that definitely was not there prior to me sleeping.
Anybody else heard of this happening?
I'd post pictures but as I mentioned before my iPhone is TOAST. I'll try and borrow one and edit this post. Any help is appreciated (I'm aware that I am under warranty I'm simply trying to make sure this IS what happened to the phone prior to making a claim).
