    Model
    Currently, I'm using 2019 RB15 advanced model.

    Problem
    Since I replaced my battery because of the swollen battery, a month has passed.

    I limited a cpu turbo boost to lower the temperature beneath 75°C(167°F) so to prevent battery from overheating (which also cause battery swelling).

    Now, obviously It seems like It's happening again.

    I guess razer's internal circuit is not enough to prevent battery from swelling.


    Question

    1. For god's sake, It's a gaming laptop. If the laptop should be unplugged for battery health, what's the use of this?

    2. Is there any way to prevent battery overcharging? *not mannualy

    3. I feel betrayed. Should I sell my laptop and buy some desktop for playing AAA games?

    I'd buy some laptop stand, so it'll get better air circulation underneath - so you'll get slightly lower temperatures, which is good for battery.

    You can't overcharge your battery, because its electronics prevent this.

    Desktop is always better, than laptop in terms of upgradeability, performance, but you'll loose mobility.

    Why laptop stand is important? Even though the name "laptop" make users want to place it on their lap, try avoiding it. Especially if you have a high metabolism.

    The human body does not absorb heat, it releases it. So lap heat will reinforce heat build on the laptop.

    If you do want to use it on your lap, get a laptop chill pad

    By placing the laptop on top of a stand allows heat to spread in the open air rather than contain it.

    I'm using razer chroma laptop stand. And I saw the benchmark that laptop stand is not that helpful for cooling cpu and gpu. It just lower temperature by about 2°C.

    Hello,
    There are some tips to prevent your battery from swelling.
    1. Don't leave your device plugged in.
    2. Use the correct power charger.
    3. Replace the battery if it is damaged or no longer performing as it should.
    4. Store the device in a cool, dry environment.

    Sorry to hear that, did you replace by your self? If from Razer since it’s only a month there’s guarantee for that to get new one.
    Personally from my several Razer blade laptops (including stealth and book 13), I had one battery bloat experience and it’s on 2018 advanced model. It’s though after 3 years gaming usage similar cpu setting with yours I low the turbo boost. The longest system I have rn is Razer edge, it doesn’t have any battery bloat and blade 14 2015 last year I saw its new owner selling it without battery issue means it’s around 5 years old. On 2018 advanced probably due COVID I mostly use it at home plugged even when not using it, maybe if you do same thing it should be avoided. Now I like on my 7th Razer system, new blade 14 i try not to always plugging it at home after the usage. It’s similar behavior with my other Razer system despite that blade 15 2018.

    [Since I replaced my battery because of the swollen battery, a month has passed.]

    Where did you get the battery? How did you find model number to order?

    My RBS 13 - 2019 has swollen battery that I need to replace ASAP.
