Has anyone had any issues with their rMBP battery swelling up?

    I have a 13" Late 2013 rMBP which had a cracked display due to accidental damage, I took it in for repair and was informed that the battery was also swollen and needed to be replaced. Apple was kind enough to provide that replacement with no further charge. I haven't had any issues since then, I'm just trying to understand if it's a more widespread issue and to reduce its chances of happening again (if it was somehow caused by me). I'm not completely sure how many cycles the old battery had but if I remember correctly, its total health was above 95%. I did use it plugged in at all times a lot, could that be one of the causes?

    I have no issues with my 2012 15" rMBP.

    My guess is that something happened to the battery in the accident.

    It doews happen fairly often but seems to be a hazard of LiPo batteries nothing anyone can do anything about. As dwfaust says the accident may also have cause the battery swelling in your case.
