Hi everyone, I’m probably one of the few who have had swollen battery issues. This time, the most recent battery issue came with the CHUWI UBook tablet that I’ve had for a few years now. Somehow, even with the device powered off, the battery decided to swell really bad that it bent the tablet itself.

Upgrading it was as easy as removing the back cover: We can see the 2x 8GB RAM modules installed in the laptop here: And here they are removed: The part…
