[HELP] Clevo PA71ES-G swollen battery

Recommended Posts

I have a Clevo PA71ES-G laptop that I bought from HIDevolution in 2018 (specs in signature).

Since the temps were getting high, I decided to re-paste the laptop and noticed the battery to be somewhat swollen as shown in the pics. I have re-pasted and re-assembled the laptop and am currently using it without plugging in the battery until I could get some advice.

 

I live in India and replacement battery is available (model PA70BAT-4) but I've never heard of any of the websites.

 

Last I repasted was November 2021 and the battery was fine back then. Is it safe to plug-in and use the battery for a while longer or is it done? I always keep the laptop plugged in and while electricity outage is not an issue, this situation has me concerned regardless.

Buy another one. That right there is a possible fire hazard.

agreed with the above, do not mess with swollen batteries, total fire / explosion hazard. get rid of the battery and look for a replacement.

Thank you all for the help, I really appreciate it!

 

@IshatixI just googled the battery model number (PA70BAT-4) and whatever came up in the results are the ones I'm doubtful about (also only 2 pages of results). Though just to name them-

ebuyindia (dot) in

topbattery (dot) in

lappiecare (dot) in

Some of the rest are from foreign sites which will be a pain in the ass to buy from for various reasons.

 

As I mentioned, I'm using the laptop right now without a battery. I think it also caused an issue where the system would crash with everything going slo-mo (animations, sound, cursor, etc) when I simply pick up the laptop. That hasn't happened so far since I removed it.

Here's a few user comments on the first two options at least:

https://teddit.net/r/IndianGaming/comments/ns2iac/buying_from_ebuyindiacom/

Doesn't seem to be a whole lot to go on, but if you can find real people willing to put their name and reputation behind the company it would certainly improve my confidence at least. You could also see if there is a way to contact them ahead of placing the order to confirm stock in place and see how responsive they are.
