    I have a 2016 RBS i7 and the battery has swelled up. I have contacted support and received a shipping label for RMA but it's out of warranty and I'm worried it'g going to be pricy just to replace the battery. I also don't want my computer to get wiped. I have found replacement batteries on ebay. If i order one can I run the RBS without a battery, just plugged in? Is that doable and safe for the computer?

    Yes, you certainly can. But you should be careful when ordering a replacement battery.

    There are two kind of batteries for the model with i7 7500u CPU. Same part number, same specs, but the connector cable length is different.

    The longer cable is grey and the shorter yellow. If your battery has a grey cable, the yellow ones will not fit on your board (1-2mm too short). Keep that in mind when ordering a replacement.

  3. I took out my battery on my Razer Stealth 2017 1060 over the weekend.
    Battery was scary bulged out, popped out some screws and was bulging the trackpad.
    Ordered new one on amazon.

    Runs on cord only until battery arrives.

    I also had my battery swollen and I took it out and ordered a replacement, which just arrived and I installed it today but after 1 or to charge and discharge cycles, now win10 says the battery is at 37% and charging but when I unplug the Razer Blade turns off. I put it to charge but it doesn't charge the battery??

    What battery did you get? The one I bought from eBay was RC30-0196. It has worked great so far. It charges full and hold a charge for decently long.
