Just noticed that the battery in my Morepork control panel seems to be growing!

 

What's the solution? Throw it away and get a new system or replace the battery with something similar?

Contact the supplier and ask about a replacement battery would be my go-to.  Any chance it's under warranty?

 

You could pop the back off, find the battery part number, and google to find a replacement.

Cheers - it's old. Will hunt down a new one.

The panel is made by Qolsys. It seems that swollen batteries are a common problem. It may be the era, I remember the batteries in my Galaxy S3 swelling quite badly.

I'd be getting that battery out of the house as quick as possible! UPS Power Solutions may have something suitable as a replacement.

I got rid of ours, after this happened. I replaced it with a roll your own alarm with home assistant and konnected.

What's roll your own alarm? Google gave me nothing.
