    haha almost burst out laughing at this one.

    i believe it's leaking. though i don't know much, it just means your battery is spoilt.

    If the new Nikon battery price is not too far off from 3rd party, can consider just getting original and be done with it. I do think you were rather unlucky to get a battery that bloats.

    If your camera is still under warranty, try bringing the battery into NSC for them to take a look.

    And bring your charger as well to verify what causes the bloating.

    Actually, these batteries doesn't leak. There is not real liquid inside that could come aout. But if the Lithium inside gets a shakehands with Oxygen you'll have a small private firework. Alkalines leak, because the chemical processes inside slowly corrode the outer cylinder.
