We’ve heard a lot about how thin and powerful the new iPhone 7 is. We’ve also heard a lot about how waterproof it is. But one question remains: Is this thing Acid Proof?

Good question, which is why TechRax poured the world’s most corrosive acid on the world’s most popular cellphone to find out.

Taking several crystals of Fluoroantimonic Acid and dropping them on a working iPhone 7, TechRax tests if the phone can withstand the acid for a day. The acid begins to eat away at the casing but does little to destroy the phone's battery. so The host then adds some hydrogen peroxide and sulfuric acid. Things get fun from there.

The results and the strength of Apple’s phone are very surprising, especially considering that most people break their phones by dropping them in the toilet. The phone actually turns on in the end, but what the acid does to this thing physically is really cool.

This bold day tripper shoves two tabs of acid down his throat before showing up to cover a Monster Truck rally for VICE's 'On Acid' series. Suffice to say, Dr. Gonzo would've approved. After all, 'when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.'

Also, how terrifying are those snow-cone mugs? In what universe would someone want to drink some rainbow slush out one of those?
