Hero (2018) Battery Misshapen

Hello, I am new to GoPro and recently bought a new Hero 2018. I removed the battery after only a few sessions of recording, maybe 3 hours total, and found the battery walls seemed to have changed shape a little. As if they sort of crimped in the middle, I think they were striaght before. This could be normal for GoPros and I dont know. It doesnt seem to affect the performence. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi @nicestar12877

 

Thanks for sharing a picture of your battery.

This is just normal and should not affect the performance at all.

 

Regards,

Keep an eye on it for safety purposes, if it swells that will not be a good sign   I still contact gopro on the phone and talk t othem about the batteyr maybe it is a defect and it should stil l seek attention for again safety purposes.
