I have an Acer Aspire V3-372T Laptop and the battery on this laptop is bulging out and slowly getting bigger. The laptop top cover won't close evenly and the when you lay the laptop on a table is completely uneven - very noticeable bulge. Has anyone have this issue before? Was there a "recall" on this laptop battery?

    You would have to contact Acer support to find out, they don't have a presence here, although sometimes the moderators can help out. The battery on your laptop is Acer part numbers: KT.00403.027 and KT.0040G.004. Those are pretty much the same, just from two different vendors. Most Lithium-ion batteries from that era eventually start bulging, they weren't doing as good of a job with the onboard smarts shutting the battery down early enough when discharging.
