I have the same problem on my nokia N80 (NL-5B) battery. I have experienced battery stand by time signaficantly reduced to one day only. The the problem worsen to incorrect indication of battery power level as the full bar of battery level will drop to only one and beeps for recharging.
Now, the battery is never fully charged even though i have left it for charging many hours!
Once i open my back cover, i was shocked to see the swollen battery. Will it explode?!
So far I have seen feedback that to bring it to Nokia Care center, but what is the outcome? pay for a replacement or receive a replacement for free? This is surely another flaw of Nokia design error since the "white screen" problem.
My device is 2.5 years old, first original battery.
Since your battery is more than 6 months, there is no hope to receive a free replacement.
I have had my new battery for 3 months now. It's still perfectly plain.
my bl 5c battery has expanded and broken the cover of my phone
ive ordered a new phone and it will come in a couple of days
just wanted to know the probability of the battery exploding.
I would refrain from using the phone with the battery in this state. You never know when it will go pop.
However saying that, I have only ever heard of the battery exploding during charging. So if you had no choice but to use the phone for the time being, make sure you do not using it when charging.
For God's sake, don't use that battery. If it's swelling it's evolving gas which means it's chemically degrading. When (not if) it eventually breaks, the lithium metal in the battery will oxidise agressively in air in a manner technically referred to as "holy **bleep**, my leg is on fire". Even if the Care Point won't honour their warranty, the store that sold it to you has an obligation to replace it under the Sale of Goods Act.
Please complain to Nokia Care, the Care Point should know better than to send you home with a battery in that state. It is a severe fire hazard.
I had EXACTLY the same problem as everyone here. I contacted my local unfriendly Nokia repeair centre only to be told it is not covered under warranty, 6 month blah blah...(I think Nokia service is allergic to the word warranty). Anyway this does not apply to Australia as we have separate consumer laws that ANY company trading in Australia have to abide by. However arguing this point with Nokia is time consuming and non productive, so I did the next best thing. I got an iPhone.
Bye bye Nokia with their useless buggy devices and worthless warranty to what is clearly a MANUFACTURING DEFECT (repeat slowly).
