Static electricity test: checking the reliability of our phones

Friction between our bodies and other objects, like carpet, can produce up to 25,000 volts of static electricity.

So, to make sure a shock like this doesn’t damage our phones, we have a test here at the Verizon Lab that zaps every phone battery model with the same voltage.  

You see, to make sure the network is reliable, we have to make sure phones are reliable first.
