This is scary!
That is unreal.
Indeed, I have seen many bulging batteries but this one's crazy.
Its also a little scary.
when i first saw these pics they really creeeeped me out. I dont wont tht on my lap when tht happens!!
Looks like something out of the X-Files.
yeah these batteries are CRAP.
Of course I only say that cuz my MBP is at the repair shop right now because of a fubared battery.
How in the name of Steve are these things still getting out?
Apple need a better system to allow them to somehow recall ALL affected batteries when they introduce a recall. This battery was made in week eight of 2006. It should have been recalled before it got this bad.
That really is scary.
Okay, I am a nOOb to this... Is this a gradual expansion or does it happen very quicky like an explosion?
That really is scary!
watch out! the alien's gonna latch to your face!!
so i guess its not one of the recalled batteries?
On the upside! I DO imagine you'll be getting a brand spanking new MBP, compliments of Steve.
It is one of the recalled batteries. The customer wasn't aware of the battery exchange program. And no, Apple haven't replaced the MBP.
Maybe this is just an exception. Most people don't get bad batteries. Sometimes we tend to overrate personal experience as being indicative of what happens to everyone else.
Please keep us posted on the results of this. I'm assuming the battery damaged the MBP case/system somehow? I seriously might not consider getting one if the computer was damaged, and it is not completely replaced. Not knowing about a recall is not a reason to void replacement of damaged goods.
I presume the MacBook Pro wasn't damaged. As only the battery was booked in for repair. Apple have said they will replace the battery.
