    Define puffed...
    Slight gassing where you can gently push your finger in is usually OK, but Swelling where the battery feels quite solid is bad and it should not be flown with.

    Check with your retailer, as you may have some warranty on it.

    +1 this is exactly what I would have said too. How many charges do you have on the battery?

    puffed battery is as noiseboy72 described:

    "...slight gassing where you can gently push your finger" .....

    so I guess I´m still on safe side....

    Thanks
