RX10iv Battery Issue
1

In my over 20 years of digital camera use I have never had a battery swell or fail on me.

This morning when my battery ran out I moved the spring clip to release it and it only came out about 1/8". I was lucky enough to be able to grab it at the sides and pull it out.

My first thought was that it was swollen, but I really couldn't see a swelling, but when I ran my finger over it, sure enough, it was slightly swollen.

I have 4 RX10 batteries, three of which have white labels and this one has a black label.

I don't recall from whom I bought it but I'm thinking it might has been a fake.

I'm thinking my batteries may be at least 4 years old. The camera, which has been flawless will be 5 years old in September and is one of my all-time favorites.
