What Happens When You Add Liquid Nitrogen To a Battery

Liquid nitrogen has taken over a rather large market share in terms of videos that you’ll find uploaded by all of the science experimenters on YouTube and this time, Mr. Gear has a crack at using the substance and pairing it with none other than a standard battery.

This is a good chance not only to break out the liquid nitrogen which always ends up being fun but also to see exactly what it is inside of something that you use each and every day.

The video starts out as you would expect with the battery being submerged and frozen but then when a hammer is thrown into the mix all bets are off as pieces of the battery begin shattering and we’re able to see what exactly is at the heart of this household item.
