Batteries swelling in Apple Watch and a lawsuit

Apple Watch Battery

It seems that the issue of swelling batteries that hit the media last year during the month of April is still a recurring topic for many users and in this case there is even a lawsuit filed in New Jersey by Priano-Keyser, in that again the company is held accountable for selling this product with this Battery problem causing swelling and screen popping or cracking.

There are many cases that have been appearing over time and some beyond the Apple Watch Series 2 which were in principle the models susceptible to this problem. In principle Apple covers the failure if we take the device and obviously this is not caused by the user, but with all this this demand falls again on Apple for this issue.

As many will recall, the firm confirmed that would repair this product for 3 years after purchase and this is how it is proceeding in cases where users arrive with this problem in stores. The fact is that not everyone is satisfied with this type of repair and now this lawsuit seeks to "punish" the company for continuing to sell the device knowing that some models have this problem. And it seems that some users with models like the Apple Watch Series 3 and Series 4 would also have this failure.

Actually it is not something that surprises is that the demand It adds a good handful of users from New Jersey who bought an Apple Watch Series 1 through Series 3, so it seems that this problem is not entirely resolved. In the application you can read some details of the problems that users experienced in their Apple Watch: swollen at the time of loading by lifting the screen and when putting it back in its place it stopped working, which the screen cracked for no apparent reason without coming off or even that in some cases the screen jumped directly from how swollen the battery was.

We will see how this topic ends but we already say that Apple takes care of the repair in most cases at no cost So if you have this problem, do not hesitate and take the device to an Apple Store or contact the firm's technical service.In information and belief, the defect is caused by aging or otherwise faulty li-in batteries, or by faulty internal components of clocks that regulate temperature, electrical currents, charging, and other mechanisms that could affect li-in the watch batteries, ”the complaint states.
