Bloated 1s battery
« on: September 12, 2018, 09:57:23 AM »
I know it's hard to see but the one battery on the bottom is a little bloated. These have only been flown about 10 to 15 times. Is it probably the battery or maybe the way I charged it?

Most likely the battery itself is the issue.

I have a lot of micro batteries like the ones you show from several different suppliers and about a quarter of them are a little bloated as well.
They still work fine and do not heat up or anything, I think it's just a cheap quality and they don't hold their shape like others.

Keep an eye on them and if your worried they are going to overheat / burn out, just dispose of them and get some new ones.

Thank Sobo, after looking a little closer I realized this was one of the batteries that came with my QX95 so it probably is cheap. It did get pretty hot too, about 110 degrees after the last flight so instead of taking a chance I'm just going to get rid of it.
