Hoax: Microwaving a Smartphone Will Charge the Battery

There is a hoax, spreading on social networking websites and the rest of the internet that claims a Smartphone battery can be fully recharged if the Smartphone is microwaved for one minute. Will microwaving a Smartphone recharge the battery? Absolutely NOT, microwaving your Smartphone will not charge the battery, it will only destroy the phone, battery, and possibly your Microwave oven. The damaged microwave may then start a fire, which may destroy your home.
