Is you battery swollen? See why it happens and what to do!

mobile phone battery swollen

Is more common than what was suppose to be but it has a reason for happening. Many mobile phones, doesn’t matter if Apple iPhones, Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, HTC Mobile or any other brands can have this problem so if you see your battery swollen just be careful and stop using the mobile until you have it replaced.

Some mobile phones have major problems straight away with broken screens or back covers because the swollen battery can make a lot of pressure on the device components and break them. Also they can catch in fire or even explode causing a lot of skin damage or destroy a house if the mobile phone is not attended so this is a serious situation that you should be aware of.

The reason why this happen can be on of a few but the most common ones are faulty batteries that came with some issue from manufacture however the most popular is the overheating situation. If you leave your mobile phone under the sun or on a hot place the battery overheats and gest swollen. The other common reason is by using defective or cheap charger cables and AC adapters that are not able to regulate the voltage properly and send too much power to the devices and then to the batteries. Also because of using such chargers the electronic components of the mobile phone that manages the power can be damaged and not repairable what makes the mobile phone useless so be aware of faulty and non genuine chargers to avoid this situations.

      Hi Nattalie, yes it is a common situation when the battery is swollen because it make too much pressure on the screen and can break it internally even if not visible. Bring it to us to check and we believe it will be repairable in less than an hour
