How-to-Use-Parts-Broken-Cell-Phone-as-Survival-Tools-Infographic-large

Commentary: I was skimming through pinterest and found this little gem.  I have known about breaking down a cellphone for the individual parts for quite a while, but this is the first time I have seen such a large and in depth image.

Cell phones are becoming more and more of an essential need in everyday life, that’s obvious. It can connect us to friends all across the globe, bring us our email instantaneously, and even provide entertainment or be a a buffer to anyone who doesn’t deserve our conversation at that moment. Because it’s such a norm, I tend to take my cell phone for granted. I recently went on a ringtone and wallpaper downloading spree to add some personality and familiarity. That’s beside the point though. Even after downloading new apps that I’ll never use and setting ringtones for particular phonebook entries who never call me, I’ve never felt a closer bond to my phone than after reading the infographic below.

To all the people who think your phone is a lifesaver because of the turn by turn navigation, here’s evidence that your phone can actually save your life. With some disassembly required, your phone can become a cutting tool, an incendiary device, or even a compass. Read on and enjoy!

    Be very careful shorting lithium ion batteries! They tend to catch on fire when you do. Technically, this would work fine with a fine enough wire, but anything unlikely to melt will probably turn that battery into a dangerous burst of fire.

    Also, you should use the metal as a spearhead instead of the circuit board, as it is made of fiberglass, and that’s not anything you should inhale while grinding, or consume after some gets on the game you harvest.
