    That battery is done for, and even dangerous. Before you know it it'll explode - don't try to charge it.

    Yikes! How long have you had your TF701T?

    I just got mine (used) a couple of weeks ago. No swelling batteries so far.

    I've had a TF300T since September 2013, used nearly daily, and no issue with it, but I don't know if it's the same batteries.

    • ASUS MeMO Pad 7 - rooted, stock ROM
    • ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T - rooted, stock ROM
    • ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T - rooted, stock ROM
    • And several Samsung Galaxy smartphones over the years: S3, S7, J3

    And a very long-time Palm OS user - Would you believe I still use one daily?

    They are not the same batteries, but they are both Liion type, and Tor is 100% here. If the screen is cracked it's time for a new tablet, don't try to power it on or charge it, wave bye-bye to any data on it, take it to a battery recycle center, they should be able to dispose of it properly. FWIW none of the five TFs in my household have had any such problems, and we don't hear of it happening a lot here on the forum. But Liion batteries do have problems, if you watch the news you've heard about them, this one is about to become a viral You-Tube video.

    At some point you may wish for your old battery driven device to die before it kills you....

    I had that swollen battery with an old Motorola phone once. Scared the heck out of me!

    I have the TF701T as well (bought it in 2013 from NewEgg). I also have the TF201 I bought before that (2012). We use these tablets as portable movie players (on the road, vacation or the gym). I keep the plugged in and charged in the same area in my computer room (along with an apple ipad, a samsung tablet and two shield tablets). After being away from my computer room for a few months, I got back and found all of my other devices intact, however this one was swollen (batteries swelled and cracked the screen).

    Does anyone know if Asus has any kind of recall on these things? This is quite dangerous as my wife and 3 year old sometimes go in that room. What if it had exploded while they were in there?
    Does anyone have a good POC within ASUS for these kind of issues?

    What ever happened to removable batteries? Asus greed is a factor of this problem. They have that battery so insidiously bound inside of there. Any attempt to pry the touch screen loose just cracks it more. The stupid batteries are glued in there. I understand that this is an old tablet (Oct 2013) and it would be alright if I could just take the batteries out and make it a plug-in only device, but no ... they want to force you to shell out $500+ or so for a new one.

    Did you disengage the locks in the frame before trying to open it up? Sounds as if you didn't.

    Well, I gotta say...Asus does advise not leaving the tablet on the charger all the time, remove it when charged. With both a cracked screen and battery swelling, it's probably time to ditch the old thing. If there's data you need on it, hook the HDMI port to your tv and use a mouse & keyboard and put the tablet itself in a stout box while dumping the data. I wouldn't stick my face in front of a potential bomb. Might be just as easy to use ADB to copy stuff over to your PC if you've set that up.
