Acer C740 Swollen Battery

CSCNCSCN Posts: 1Member New User
edited January 2018 in Chromebooks
Our school board have over 800 units of Acer Chromebook through our 20 Schools. Since 2 months, nearly 300 Acer Chromebook C740, had previously purchased in March 2015 ( out of warranty) have stopped working because of Swollen battery. Some of these chromebook have deformation which causes trackpad issues.
From what I can see on this community, this is a commum problem. Acer have a battery replacement program?

    Hi CSCN,


    Sorry to hear that you’re having problems with the Chromebooks, I have sent you a PM requesting the information that I need to have a Premier Customer Advocate follow up and help with this matter.


    Thanks,

    I, unfortunately, am also having this problem...unable to click on the left side of trackpad and keys are pushing into the screen when its closed. Quite disappointing. Acer-here's looking at you to make this right...

    Looks like quite a few others are also experiencing this issues posting in the last month or so. 

    Be in touch,

    We are a district in Connecticut and have 700+ Acers (720 and 740s) in our schools and recently have noticed trackpad issue with swollen batteries.  In doing a check today at one building we found 30 out of 100 CBs with this issue.  Expect to find the same at our other schools.  Very concerned about safety issues with the batteries.  What is Acer doing about this?

    Hey Manny - I have a few C740-C4PE that are exhibiting the same behavior. Swollen batteries, and their pushing up the keyboard/trackpad. Could you send me a PM, please, at your convenience? I'm curious what my options are.
