Battery become bloated after first charge

  • CrowJuice Sunday, May 14, 2017 6:46 PM Reply

    The battery become very bloated after the first charge after using it with a cheap charger I bought from the inteternet. I left it charging for several hours as I thought it was protected. Should not the protective board have preventet this?

    a cheap charger I bought from the inteternet.


    You should defifinitely send it back there.


    Should not the protective board have preventet this?


    If there was a manufacturing defect with the battery, I doubt there would be much the protection circuit could do (assuming it is fitted with one).


    Edit - typo fixed.

    Hello @CrowJuice

    It's better to charge this battery with the charger which has charging protection.

    Be happy. ( *^_^* )

    So this battery is not protected? It says in the description that it is protected. Or is the battery just defect?

    The product title clearly says "Battery w/ Protective Board" so a protected charger should not be required. Protection on the charger will make no difference unless the battery protection circuit is defective (or missing).

    I have never seen a high rate battery with protected primary leads. If there is a protection board, it will usually be only for the charge/balance leads (if they even exist). Maybe the is an exception, but based on how it bloated on the first charge, I somehow doubt that.

    What's up with the scrubbed LED driver IC markings?
    What are they trying to hide?

    Yeah, good point. How would/could it be done?


    It's in DX's best interests to have correct descriptions. It becomes a serious safety issue with lithium batteries. The details have still not been corrected.


    I will RMA the battery.


    Within 90 days of shipping, DX will only reimburse shipping up to 35% of the item's value (up to a maximum $40), so that allows you $1.64 to get it back to them. http://www.dx.com/Page-Conditions#return-policy.
