Solved!

Does the HP Envy VS03xl battery have bulges in it?

HP Recommended
HP ENVY - 15-as103na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I have an HP envy and looking at the battery it is bulging across its length in three places by around 4-5 mm. 
I am not clear of photos of this battery whether this is a deliberate design feature, or whether this battery is on the way out and needs replacing.
The bulges are evenly spaced almost as it the battery is divided into three parts.

Does anyone know if this is the battery failing, or how they were originally constructed.  The Laptop is a 2016 model with the battery having a 2016/08 date and the disc drive a 2016/09 date.

Thanks

The battery is failing (will fail soon) and should be replaced.

Make sure your backups are current...

  • If the battery is in a swollen or bloated condition, the battery must be removed from the computer and replaced.
  • There are no other remedies, tests, or useful options.

Thanks, i suspected as much.  Time to replace....

 

Unfortunately the HP store does not seem to have the 849313-850 battery VS03XL.  So I'll have to go to a third party provider.  really helpful though, thanks.

You are welcome.

 

HP does not carry very many batteries - and those they do carry are usually in stock for a limited time.

I had to purchase a "compatible" battery for my Zbook recently.  Meh.  Battery is fine.

 

Stay Safe.

Welcome to the HP Support Community.  

 

As this is a hardware issue, I'd suggest you Contact HP in your region regarding the service options for your computer. 

 

If you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty. If yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from. Check next to your profile name, you should see a little blue envelope, please click on it.   

 

Have a great day!
