What to do with swollen batteries?
Swollen batteries need replacing. Firstly check what caused the swelling (i.e. high temperatures, terminal short or faulty battery charger). Thus avoiding a reoccurrence.
Once replaced, environmentally dispose the old batteries. If you are not using the services of a UPS company like PowerContinuity to carry out these works, contact a local waste recycling company to collect your batteries. Depending on the quantity, they will either collect or can deliver.
When handling the old batteries, be sure to wear gloves. By the same token avoid dropping or impacting the batteries. Swelling may have already weakened the external container.
