    How about the vest is sewed as a series of pockets to hold the bat'tries?

    Which is what I took "small iron plates sewn between layers of felt and canvas" to mean and how I'd do it, if I did it, which I won't.

    That might work, until you get shot and you're quickly consumed in a chemical fire. Of course, consider the weight of such a vest, probably heavier than ceramic plates.

    Maybe a better idea would be a similar idea except using overlapping AR500 plates in a dragon scale type configuration, wrapped in kevlar to stop the spawl.

    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    I didn't see the dead cell phone battery burst into a super-nova in the original video, but I suppose anything's possible. Usually the conflagration is from overheating, not impact damage https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/why-pho...ppening-to-you

    I'll restate my original point - this is field-expedient 21st century peasant fodder (hence the "Mad Max" in the title).

    You know, for the folks who can't afford AR500 plates.

The divisions between cells is so thin that an impact causes them to short across and start a fire.

    Of course in a Mad Max world, you'd have a better chance of finding Apocalypse Pudding than you would a supply of Nokia battery packs that could be made into a vest.
    I'd think dead phone batteries would be in abundant supply at that point. After all, MAD MAX is about 15 minutes into the future from where we are now.


    Anyways, enjoy the videos added above.

    Doesn't that video prove how bad those batteries would be as body armor?

    Ive just been waiting for the videos of someone attempting this haha

    If reactive armor works on tanks why not people?

    We should be looking into and using non-newtonian technology and materials if we were to have a real conversation about this.

    Anyone with half a brain should see the many flaws in attempting to use potentially explosive batteries as some form of armor.

    In fact, materials such as D3O show amazing potential for current and future body armor applications for trauma padding, with other similar materials being refined to be bullet and stab proof.

    Show me a range test where they blow up under impact.
