That ain't good

Illustration for article titled That aint good

The trackpad on my laptop is slowly working its way free from the rest of the computer. The problem is the battery underneath. Dell has a problem with lithium batteries going bad and swelling up. When they swell, they push the trackpad out of the chassis. I guess it works as a safety relief valve and notifies the user that there’s a problem.


A new battery is on the way. In the meantime, I’m just hoping it doesn’t explode.
