    Don't use the swollen battery. Indicates a bad cell or cells. We have gotten reports of some users getting over a hundred charges on theirs. I haven't gotten past 45-50 charges before I have had to replace. I have changed to try to get longer longevity by not keeping my batteries charge 100 until I am ready to use.
    Reports indicate the best place to have and hold a lipo batteries level is around 50 percent level. It has been noted that puffing is caused by heat. A cell over charges, heat from being store in 100 degree plus temperatures, or unequal charging of cell. Best to store at 50% charge in a cool environment.
