    Hi everyone, I just want to ask whether the static electricity can cause the mobile battery to explode.

    Simple answer is yes..
    But what static electricity?
    What mobile battery?
    You must have had a static electrical shock (electrostatic discharge) from a metal door knob in the past?
    I have and have seen the spark too! It can hurt as well.
    The human body can discharge about 30,000 volts.
    Lightning is also a static discharge. Albeit on a much larger scale.

    'Outside the box', a true battery may have its charge controller damaged by static and cause such mishappen. A 'protected' single cell has also some components subject to damage by static discharge. A pure bare cell, unlikely, unless the static discharge hits/affects a built-in-device managing circuit.

    Maybe the cell has "gassed" with hydrogen. A few of my Li-PO cells have ballooned but I didn't poke them and light them to see if it was hydrogen.

    This is exactly why I asked "what mobile battery!.".
    You straight away assume a lipo or Ni-mh or nicd.
