Brandon's Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ui7ZL0YM48A

On Brandon's channel, he runs a lot of "creative durability tests", a.k.a. destroying iPhones in cool ways. In this video, watch as an iPhone is truly destroyed for good in Terminator 2 style, in a vat of molten metal. The metal is so hot that it looks like lava. Check out the insane transformation the iPhone goes through!

In yet another of his epic adventures with molten aluminium, Brandon and his guest take us on a journey of destroying an iPhone in a matter of seconds. If you thought nothing beats this monster gadget, see what happens near the end of this video.

Molten aluminium oxide near the melting temperature is roughly 2/3 tetrahedral (i.e. 2/3 of the Al are surrounded by 4 oxygen neighbors), and 1/3 5-coordinated, very little (<5%) octahedral Al-O is present. Around 80% of the oxygen atoms are shared among three or more Al-O polyhedra, and the majority of inter-polyhedral connections are corner-sharing, with the remaining 10–20% being edge-sharing. The breakdown of octahedra upon melting is accompanied by a relatively large volume increase (~20%), the density of the liquid close to its melting point is 2.93 g/cm3.

We're dying to know if the phone was good for use!

Do not try this at home.
