If you’re anything like me, you complain all the time about your cell phone battery always running out and how you’re constantly charging it. It kinda comes with the territory when we use our phones to do literally everything, from checking our e-mail to checking on our infant baby’s in their crib. Yes, there is an iPhone baby monitor out there.
But did you know that cell phone batteries can stop bullets?
I didn’t either. But I am pulling all the batteries out of my old phones and am starting to fashion a bullet proof vest out of all my old Li-Ion friends. What is crazy is this isn’t the first time that a battery has stopped a bullet. Apparently a man in South Africa survived a car jacking when his attackers tried to shoot him in the head. He was talking on his cell phone at the time and the bullet once again was stopped by the battery.
Naturally we don’t recommend that you go around shooting your friends to see if the battery will save their lives. But it’s nice to know that a certain cell phone accessory that comes with every phone is capable of saving your life should you be unlucky enough to get shot, but lucky enough to get shot in the battery.
