    New lipo 5800 slight puff on both sides

    Hi guys I just opened up my ordered from Amazon and the battery seemed puffy on both sides..it's not flush/flat on the table..could it be the package on how it's sealed around the battery or is this a defect?..I'm not sure how to post pics here..but if anyone can take it a look I'll email the pic...thanks..

    I was told that if they puffed, they'd be squishy like a sponge.

    Contact Amazon, they may replace them.

    Non hard casing LiPo are not perfectly square and flat on all sides. What do the " bulges" feel like when you push with your fingers on them?

    Agreed there not flat, but if it feels like an air bubble trapped under the plastic....... That is indeed puffed / damaged
