RavPower battery issues

Beware of RavPower NP-FW50 batteries

I purchased 2 2-packs of these at the end of September. Two of the 4 batteries refused to charge straight out of the box. Over Thanksgiving, a third battery swelled inside my camera body, forcing me to pry it out with a metal tool. I used the battery fewer than 5 times before it swelled. I never put it under stress. No extreme temperatures. Just casual photography.

I contacted the company and explained. Told them I’ve lost faith in their product and want a refund. Told them I don’t want to risk damaging my camera from using their battery. They said that since it’s past 30 days, they can only offer a replacement.

TL/DR: RavPower dba Sunvalley Brands batteries have a horrible track record and might break your camera.
