MacBook Pro – Swollen Battery – Heat Management

I’ve been using the MacBook Pro platform for daily business operations for years now.

One issue I’ve suspected is that if you leave the laptop display closed for extended periods of time, the laptop can heat up enough to cause the battery to swell.

This happened on my most previous MacBook and I’ve just noticed it happening on my current MacBook. The first symptom is that the laptop will not stay closed all the way and sealed around the edges. I’ve found that if I leave the lid open, the laptop will run much, much cooler. I’ve also purchased a laptop stand that will hold it vertical that I may try, although I’d prefer to keep the lid open and have it lay flat.

Anyone else experienced this issue? I checked on the last laptop and it was not covered by the recall.
