The battery rarely overheats, it's your logic board that is heating up.

You're absolutely right! Would you happen to know why this could be happening?


Anything else unusual?


Other than it getting hot when i connect a battery, no, nothing else is out of the ordinary


Can't say for sure since there is not much for me to go on, but usually you start with these things: stuck apps/software that requires a system restore, broken peripheral parts that are shorting the power or causing the system to request them repeatedly, or broken logic board components that cause the system to request them repeatedly.
