    My laptop Battery is SWOLLEN

    I don't know what happened but my laptop battery is swollen like Li-poly batteries do if they get damaged. I haven't done anything out of the ordinary! This is annoying because I'm going to end up buying a new battery I predict.

    Since you're Mac Book Pro should still be under the 1yr Apple Care warranty, I think they'l replace that battery for you. It's obvioulsy defective.

    second opinion: I agree with wraith! You can get that battery replaced under warranty.
    Serendipity is a lucky guess !

    Hey Heli,

    Where do you live? I think it's best to have them have a look at an Apple store or an authorized service provider, or call AppleCare. If you have to call them it will also be good if you have some pictures so you can show them if requested. Swollen batteries should be taken seriously.

    Do note use that battery. Take it out of the computer, and use the computer plugged in. If you can't take it out, don't use the computer.

    No, this is a relatively isolated event as far as I know. Defects happen, and you're covered for a year automatically.
