The battery is an essential part of the device. A battery that is in use for a long time can be worn out or malfunction. If you notice your battery drains fast or doesn’t charge at all, then you know that you have a bad battery that needs to be replaced. Another sign of a bad battery is a swollen or deformed battery. A swollen battery can be hazardous because it can leak dangerous chemicals. Always wear proper protection while handling batteries and follow the manufacturer's safety procedure.
