replacing battery hero 7 black

ive had this camera for a few months and have used it a couple of times and whil i havent had the charge issues that others are having i have noticed that my battery has started ti swell with a bulged appearing either side of the battery. i have also noticed  significant rise in temperture in the battery housing as the metal housing clearly isnt designed for airflow. so has anyone else noticed this?

Hi @adamo586

 

Are you able to send a picture of the battery so we can assess the issue further?

 

Please ensure that you are suing once a recommended charger.

 

For reference you can also check: Camera Performance in Extreme Temperatures

 

Thanks!
