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.
