Hi, I need some help. It appears that my laptop, MacBookPro5,1 15" 2008, has slightly swollen battery in it. Replacement battery seems to be quite expensive in my country and this computer isn't covered by warranty anymore. It was bought used and the previous owner had dropped it pretty badly (there is dents on the cover where the apple logo resides), is it possible that very slight battery deformation could be caused by this drop? Alternatively, could the deformation be caused by excess heat coming from the components and/or being plugged it for too long (the laptop is pretty much always plugged in at home)? I am aware that Lithium ion polymer batteries can be dangerous if swollen (this article has some scary pictures, but my battery isn't that bad, at least not yet): http://www.tekrevue.com/swollen-battery/ Picture of the battery cover not quite fitting when the battery is inside the laptop: http://i.imgur.com/7iGI7Gw.jpg Picture of the battery itself (it is not easy to tell from this awful picture, but I can feel with my hand at least that the battery is uneven): http://i.imgur.com/xMHjx8S.jpg Here is coconutbattery stats: http://i.imgur.com/1eaUY5v.jpg Here is batterycare stats: http://i.imgur.com/1jR8YY0.jpg I also did Windows Battery health check which shows the same stats as batterycare. Another strange thing I noticed is that the battery indicator is not correct: On both OSX and Windows side the computer will shut down without warnings at 37-40%.
