Is it true that iPhone 7 battery explodes?

Some of them do and some catch fire. Lithium batteries are very powerful but also very volatile and any exposure to air/oxygen sets them off. That is why it is so important that the container they are in is not compromised physically in any way.

The back popped open on my ematic and the silver pouch inside is swollen How do I fix it

Whilst I am not familiar with the brand of tablet you have, please be warned that it is in a dangerous condition. The "silver pouch" you mention is the Lithium battery that powers the tablet, and the fact that it is swollen means it is faulty and could rupture (split open) anytime. The danger here is that the Lithium inside the battery will ignite in a very hot flame if it comes into contact with air, which it obviously will if the battery splits open. Do not store the tablet inside your home until the battery has been replaced. My advice would be to unplug and remove the battery if it is plugged into the mainboard of the tablet, place it inside a fire resistant container, and take it to your nearest battery disposal location. Then you can most probably source a replacement battery either on eBay or from the store where you purchased the tablet. If the battery is soldered in place and you do not have the tools or expertise to remove it, then I'd advise that you call a local PC or cellphone repair company and see if they are willing to remove and replace the battery for you. If they are, take the tablet to them (in a metal bucket or similar, just in case the battery fails). The swelling of the battery's casing is the result of gasses being generated inside the battery, and indicate that it may be in a very dangerous condition, so I stress again, it is a potential fire hazard and should not be kept it inside a building unless it's in a fire retardant location.

Snopes truth fiction

As mythbusters would say : Plausible.
Garmin's use Lithium Ion battery technology which can explode and catch fire. Garmin issued an older series of devices a Battery Recall because of some reported instances call their support number and they can tell you if your Garmin serial number has been recalled. Understand though that it is a battery issue and many companies have dealt with exploding batteries. Try reading this for more info.

My zte majesty battery heats up n charge doesn't hold, do I need a battery or is it the phone?

I myself would replace that battery, yes. If it gets too over-heated, there is a possibility it could explode or catch fire. At the least over-heating can ruin your phone itself.

Rc helicopter battery

Tip #1: Wait at least 15-20 minutes after you drain a battery to charge it.
This allows the battery to cool down before each charge cycle. I would make sure the battery is cool to the touch before charging it again, but 15 minutes should be alright.

Pointer #1: If the battery is hot after use, then it is a good sign that your battery is getting old.
Anything warmer than about 140 degrees is dangerous; if your battery is this warm after flying, it's time to replace it. I wouldn't use it anymore so it doesn't explode. This is a good indication that in the near future you should look to getting a new one. I would recommend a higher quality / mAh battery (keep the same voltage, though) if the battery running out is a stock battery.

Tip # 2: Wait at least 15 minutes after charging a battery to use it.
Once again, this is to let the battery's chemical processes have a break.

Pointer #2: Battery terms to understand when buying a RC battery.
mAh: Milli Ampere Hour. This is basically the electric charge transferred by a current of one milliampere for one hour. I'm no electrical genius, but the higher the mAh, the longer a battery will last per charge. This is the one part of a battery that you can change without damaging the heli.
Volt: The electrical pressure. Basically this determines how much power can flow to the motor. For lipo batteries the voltage comes in multiples of 3.7 volts, or 3.7 volts per cell.
Cell: An independent 3.7 volt battery.
If you would like a little more in-depth explanation, I found this howstuffworks article helpful.
Litium-Ion (Li-Ion): a type of battery that has a rigid cell structure and shape. It is safer than a lipo battery, but not as efficient.
Lithium-Polymer (Lipo): a type of battery with a flexible cell structure and shape. Lipos can catch fire and explode if mistreated or dropped on a hard surface. BE CAREFUL! Although more dangerous, they are more efficient than li-ion batteries and can come in practically any shape with the same cell count.
Look below to see how the li-ion (on the right) has two defined cylindrical shapes in the package, whereas the lipo to the left is just a rectangle with no visible curvature or cells.

When i am charge the camera and after trying to open it saying battery temperature high problem

You have a bad battery or the battery controller inside the battery is out. What happens is the battery overcharges and the battery produces more power than it should. It also can get into a problem where it keeps getting hotter and hotter until it catches fire. Doesn't happen that often in camera battery's but is a lot more common in other lithium type batteries. Anyway this isn't something you want to ignore. Just go replace the battery with a new one and toss out the hot one. Don't try to use it just in case it decides to thermally run away and catch fire or explode one day.

You can find new replacement batteries online much cheaper than buying from the manufacturer or their dealers. Just do a search for your camera type and battery ie "Canon rebel battery" and then find someone close or cheap or both. You can save yourself a lot of money if the shipping is cheap. I purchased a battery for $15 instead of $70. Works fine and at that price can buy a few more if needed.

This isn't dangerous now but it can be so you do need to replace this battery. Take it out of the camera and don't use it and you will be fine.
