    Well OC'ed to 1.3gHz the highest temp i reach is 108F but usually i average between 78F and 86F with the screen off and while my D2 is in use i usually average in the 90's.

    Are you oc'ed or running custom kernal? and your temps running hot?

    Stay below 120°F and you'll be fine. I dont have a link with me, but google "lithium ion polymer batteries" (sometimes called li-po in the rc world) for more details. Even tough you may find info for rc batteries, all li-po batteries work about the same. I know the same safety precautions(for the battery) apply for my rc heli and my phone.

    Same with the phones temp. But I haven't seen the phone get as hot as the battery. I also have SetCPU's profiles set to step in at 115° to cool things down. Hope this helps.

    I recently had a bad experience with my phone also. I am a welder and I was using my welding machine to charge my phone. Anyway it fried my battery one night when I was charging it at my house. The temp was 129!! So now my extended battery is gone. Case and point high temp will destroy the battery and the device.

    No no I had it plugged up to the machine and the phone in my jacket. 129 burned my fingers. I took the battery out and left it alone for a while. Now it has the regular battery and I haven't had any problems.

    im pretty late but i didn't get any pictures of my battery because it smelled sooo weird,
    like a horrible but kinda sweet and nice smell. but the smell gave me a headache all day lol.

    so once it smoked i threw it in my fire pit and let it burn real good haha

    Fire pit always works and you think it might be chemicals in the battery evaporating when it got so hot to produce the smell with a headache side affect
