How to remove wrinkles from pouch batteries
I have this ..eh. battery. from said phone.
It is already wrinkled BEFORE I started to pry (and remove it) from the chassis, which I did successfully.
But the wrinkle is so severe, I think I will need to find a method to remove it. Or, if it is a indication of failure, replace it.
For those that are wondering, no. The battery is not bent. I also don’t think it had a puncture — that’s why I need to un-wrinkle to find out.
Keep in mind that a recycling facility for batteries is very difficult to find in China. I don’t want to toss out these “dangerous” cells especially when they still keep a charge.
