N73 + Swollen Batteries = ??

Thursday, January 15, 2009

I checked my Nokia N73 Music Edition as soon as I read this news.

Apparently, Nokia admitted that some BP-6M batteries they used in N73 have swollen up. This is a normal occurrence for lithium-ion batteries, but are supposed to happen after it has aged several years. It's good to mention that there's no risk involved, aside from having an enlarged battery that may prove hard to fit into the charger or mobile phone.

No worries though. Head over the nearest Nokia Service Center and they'll give a free replacement after verifying your claims.
