Torn battery wrap is it safe to remove?

I was trying to remove the batter from my iPhone 6 and of course, the adhesive strips broke. So I tried prying it off and started smelling something sweet. Low and behold, I'd just been ripping the wrap off of the battery. I freaked and stopped the removal process. It didn't get hot or smoke or anything. Just the smell.

My question is, can I continue and just rip it out then toss it, is it safe? Or should I leave it be and dispose of the entire phone? I don't want it to blow up while I'm touching it.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hey, it is a very low chance that it will explode and it's bigger chance if you use metal tools to remove it.

I really hope you have disconnected it from the motherboard?

If you got any plastic tool that you can get under it from left side (to not damage the motherboard), I would do that, if it half lose it usually is enought just to pull the hole battery down wards but still up so it gets of from the housing

I did disconnect it from the motherboard. I'm going to try and see if I can get it out. Thank you so much!

I don't think a plastic tool would be strong enough. I always ended up having to use metal tools that are not sharp like a spudger but without poking in too hard and not bending the battery too much while prying.

@benjamen50 i usually used one of these https://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTAwMVgxMDAx/...

(can't upload pic from my phone..)

I also got different plastic cowbars at my regular job that would work great to (car mechanic)

Take it to a mobile phone repair shop, they should be able to remove it without it blowing up.

I've prayed plenty of iPhone 5s and 6 or higher batteries without issue while being careful.

Thank you for replying!! So let's say... What if I tried myself? How likely is it (in your opinion) it'd explode and I'd be seriously injured?
