A friend was telling me to check his Micromax Funbook tab since quite a long time. According to him, the back panel was popping out and was no longer fitting back. Paid a visit to him yesterday and I was shocked to see the tab :iomg:




I have never seen a battery swollen like this before. The tab was still working with this battery. I immediately disconnected the battery and disposed it off before it could explode.

Happens, if you use any battery powered gadget extensively (24*7) for a month or two.

He's a casual user. No 24/7 usage by him.I guess I'll have to keep an eye on my old tablet which is serving as a digital photo frame, always connected to the mains.
