Check your battery. Open your laptop. You might have a bulging battery.

    My GL502VM is a little over a year old, and I never use the battery.

    I opened up my laptop today only to find that the 4 battery cells were bulging.

    Because the plastic case has some room, you wouldn't even know this happened.

    Worst case, one day... kaboom. hard drive gone in blazing lithium fire, Tesla style.

    Filed a warranty claim with my credit card, and they gave me a big fat check.

    Most of my rc car battery bulge. I have a high end balance charger too and that doesnt seem to help. I have a 11V lipo on a bilge pump thats badly bulged and it sits out in the rain for years and no issyu

    @link626, did you file for a warranty claim on the cost of replacing the battery or the whole laptop?

    Do you plan on keeping it and replacing the battery or going for a whole new notebook?

    What I am curious is, which credit card company do you have? That's a nice benefit. :)
