MacBook Battery Swelling

We have repaired numerous MacBook Battery Swelling issues.

The main cause for battery cell swelling is what is known as thermal runaway.

If a cell reaches a certain temperature then a chemical in the cell (usually Cobalt Oxide for Lithium Ion batteries) starts an unintended reaction which is exothermic in nature (i.e. it creates heat). More heat raises the cell temperature further which causes more of the same chemical reaction

This creates a runaway thermal overload which can end in one of two ways, the cell and therefore the battery pack, catches fire or the reaction fizzles out with the cell in a swollen state.”

Once your MacBook battery is not performing as it should, not holding charge at all, short battery life or no battery detected error, you should consider having the battery replaced. If the battery does go into “thermal runaway” it can become an expensive repair.

We have repaired numerous MacBook Battery Swelling issues. The extent of the repair varies, some are a simple replacement as the MacBook battery is only slightly swollen, on other repairs the battery may have leaked, damaged the trackpad through expansion or heat damaged the internals of the MacBook.
