Anyone else notice that we long-time Brighthand folks tend to hang on to our stuff a very long time? Just kinda of a public service announcement for all my fellow device collectors that these non-user-serviceable batteries don't last forever and it can actually be quite dangerous. So, my beloved Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (seriously, would it have killed them to use a shorter name?) started having problems with it's hardware home button. It was jiggly and loose, and although it still functioned, something was obviously wrong/broken. Googling the problem, I found the part that was likely the culprit -- it was just a piece surrounding the button that eventually breaks from use and causes the button to be jiggly and tilt weird. I found the whole thing annoying because I don't really use it that much anymore, but I still use it (and Android) enough that I'm not really ready to give it up yet (but I'm also not going to invest any more $ in an Android tablet). It was also a bitter pill to swallow because both my wife's and son's Samsung Tab S tablets had their wifi board die in them within a few months, rendering these rather pricey tablets relatively useless. So, I was already annoyed at Samsung from this. Again, I don't use this tablet that much anymore, but I do keep it charged and ready to go, and I always bring it with me on airplane trips because a 15" Chromebook isn't as easy to use on a plane. So, I'm packing it in my carry-on bag when I noticed the screen looked "bent". I was thinking it must be my glasses or just an optical illusion in the reflection of the screen, etc., but then for some reason I pushed on the casing around the hardware home button, there was a "click" sound, and the home button now worked perfectly find. Ah, so it was just that the casing popped open, probably from rough handling in my bag the last time I took this tablet on an airplane trip (which was the last time I used it). But then on closer inspection, the screen was definitely bent/bulging in the middle and it dawned on me from experiencing this with other devices that it was likely a swollen battery. Sure enough, after breaking out my phone toolkit and popping open the casing, the rather large battery was rather puffy! It wasn't as bad as I've seen other batteries, but that's likely because the other batteries (cameras, phones, MP3 players, etc.) have all had batteries with hard plastic casings, so when they got puffy they cracked the casing (and in some cases the device they were in at the time). This battery has the usual soft plastic wrapper. Anyway, I left the tablet disassembled, put the bloated puffy battery in a safe place, went on my trip without my tablet, and ordered a replacement battery from Amazon for $19. When I got back home, the install was ezpz, and it appears that my Android tablet with the really long name will get at least a little more use in the future.
