    I saw on Twitter from a pretty reputable account (@LifeProTips) that microwaving your phone for a minute will charge the battery to 100%. I thought it was BS obviously so I googled it and people are saying it actually works. Does anybody have experience with this? I guess the science behind it could kinda make vague sense but I'm not brave enough to try it...unless I get solid proof it's legit.

    No, don't try it. Whoever does is an idiot and will burn/destroy their phone. Skip to one minute on the video below.
