Dunno.  Of course, when you overheat electronics like that, they tend to 
make obvious burning marks on everything around them.  This is a good 
thing, since it lets you know right away that the ID is damaged and that 
you need to get a replacement.

Excessive physical shocks tend to make it more difficult to tell that 
the electronics inside are damaged, which means you want to avoid things 
like that since you want to know if there has ever been any accidental 
damage done.
