your battery is broken

It’s all fixed now, but if your battery begins to do this, get it the heck out of your house.

This is a battery for a first gen run of the 17" Macbook Pros.  My first battery had a swelling problem that reared it’s head about 11 months into owning the laptop.  I sent it away and got a new battery as it was a known problem (at least they weren’t blowing up, like some other companies).  9 months later, this battery has the same problem, even worse though than the first one did.  Now I’m onto my third battery.  a week in…no problems.  Yet.
