    ok so i went to fix my home button contact on the inside today because it slipped off. ive done this before with no problem but this time i accidentally stabbed the battery. immedeately the battry started smoking and let off a foul odor.

    Should i be worried about leaving the battery overnight since theres no way of disposing it right now? and how should i dispose it tomorrow?

    well you need it take it to a place that can specialize in battery disposal (NOT the woods)

    let me get this straight though. it was turned on while you were fiddling with the insides. *shakes head in disapproval*

    how can you sue a company for something like that, after you stabbed the battery?

    Yeah I work for a law office. They would laugh at you if you tried to hire one of them to represent you after stabbing the battery, and trying to sue a multi billion dollar company. Good luck with that!

    Get a 1200 oehm battery for the iPod touch. I'd be more worried about my iPod then some stupid disposal.
