My macBook pro has leaked a clear liquid overnight. It is slightly thicker than water and has a chemical scent. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Apple are yet to offer an explanation.

Run.

Oh, right, a helpful note. I would take this to Apple immediately. And complain about potential damages not only to the laptop but to your house / residence.

This is seriously concerning.

A very dangerous situation. Take care:

Can lithium ion batteries leak?

A failing Li-ion begins to hiss, bulge and leak electrolyte. The electrolyte consists of lithium salt in an organic solvent (lithium hexafluorophosphate) and is highly flammable. ..

How did it manage to leak like that? Is that the top of the lid? The picture ain’t clear at all...

I really hope that's not the battery - but I have to be suspicious of this one.

It's highly unlikely that the battery would cause that and still work (hence Apple would have known it was the battery). Also - that looks like far more liquid than a MBP battery could hold. Simply the volume of liquid looks greater than the actual capacity of the battery.

And if this was indeed from a battery, in my experience, having dealt with batteries going bad, you would see some form of crystallisation.

I don't think it's even a MacBook, whatever is on that picture has got nothing to do with a MacBook imo, as the panel does not resemble anything similar that is actually part of the MacBook.

PS: Looks like another troll
