I have puffed Mavic batteries all of a sudden and it might be from the heat. I realize this topic has no doubt been discussed many times. However, I'd like a little advice in a hurry. These batteries pictured below have a lot of hours on them and have served me well. I am working out in the desert this week and have a hunch the heat caused them to swell. After a 15 minute flight yesterday after work I noticed while pulling the battery out for the next flight, it literally popped out due to excessive swelling. The ambient temperature during the flight was well over 100 degrees. Not unusual for many of my flights but I got to wondering if this week the batteries reached their tolerance limit in the parking lot. Although the batteries have survived a lot of travel, I will no longer keep my case in the car out her in the Mojave. What do you think? Your experience, comments and/or advice will be appreciated.
