    Shorting a lithium battery internally (which is what happened) is a very bad idea. They have extremely low internal resistance which means they can dump Hella amps and catch fire..... which you discovered the hard way.

    Glad you didn't get anything else lit.

    This is what I was talking about when people kept implying the backplate was intentionally made removeable to make it easy to replace the battery loll

    No manufacturer I know, makes a phone with a non-removeable battery, with a backplate that is easy to remove. That negates one of the benefits of non-removable battery - you make the phone in less pieces/tigther put together.

    If you need to replace the battery, a professiona will have the tools to pry open the back - there's no need to make the plate "removeable". But the backplate on the K1 actually comes off when you don't intend for it loll

    The consumer is not supposed to replace the battery on their own - even if so, by the time you need to replace it the phone will be so old most people move onto the newer phone.

    You don't replace non-removable batteries because if you don't know how to do it, this is what happens. Lucky it didn't explode!

    Man, smartphone manufacturers seriously need to go back to making devices with removable batteries.

    The rice thing doesn't work, I had some damp rice once, put it in a draw full of mobile phones, still damp a week later..
    Were you expecting your phones to absorb the water from the rice?

    Lol, they glued the battery instead of the screen.
    LOL.

    Someone must have been drunk at work and thought the glue should go to the battery instead of the screen.

    Removing the battery when wet only applies when you know, the battery is supposed to be removable lol. Glad you didn't blow up though.
    Thanks mate, it was close but no blow up lol

    Exactly! I really like your attitude though. Not too many people could drown their phone; then watch it burn, and still keep an upbeat outlook like you! You're pretty amazing! Hope you are loving a new KEYone really, really soon!!

    There are no claims of water resistance for this phone, but even if there were stabbing the battery definitely nukes the warranty.
    Shocking

    I'm just dumbfounded that you actually tried to put out the fire with water. Do your research next time before you play with flammable objects or better yet, just don't do anything. Also, irrespective of the adhesive you must have been seriously bending the battery or caused it to puncture. Repair requires finesse not brute force.
