Suddenly, your battery can’t fit in your phone anymore or can barely fit. You can’t afford for that to happen right now. The question is: why is it swollen in the first place? By the way, it’s unfortunate, but when your battery gets swollen, it cannot be fixed – you have to get a new one. That’s why it’s a good idea to figure that out so that you can take measures that will prevent your battery from swelling the next time.


The following are three main reasons that may cause your smartphone or cellphone battery to swell:


  • Overcharging: This usually isn’t an issue when you use the charger that came with your phone. However, there are times when that charger can malfunction and cause your battery to be overcharged. As a matter of fact, your phone should not be left on the charger for very long after the battery has been fully charged. This can definitely add to the extent of the problem. You should also know that Lithium Ion batteries don’t react well to overcharging at all, so be very careful with those.


  • Heat: Extremely high temperatures in the battery as a result of charging or rapid discharging from using the device, could have an effect on the chemistry of the battery. This negative chemical effect could cause your battery to get swollen.


  • Faulty Manufacturing: This is a case of the manufacturer’s issue. It’s not your fault; it’s a problem which occurred within the manufacturing process, that’s why your poorly-made battery has swollen.


If at any point, you realize that your battery has swollen, you need to get rid of it immediately. Your swollen battery can leak and damage your phone or it can even explode and start a fire. Don’t take the chance. Try to replace the battery with an original one just like it, because it will be safer and it will also perform more effectively within your phone.
