I have a 3rd party battery that went and got all puffy on me and the a-holes @ Banggood.com refuse to warranty it unless I ship it back to them in China, which, it is illegal to ship damaged batteries. Not to mention the cost/paperwork to ship it back to China.

So, I've decided it would be best just to eat the cost, keep my chin up, and move forward. A helluva lesson I learned to save $25, which in the end, including the cost of replacing the battery, actually cost me around $210 to save $25...What a fool I am, yes I know and admit it. We all live and learn, and dammit, have I learned!

So then, what needs to be done, where do I dispose of this POS? Have no clue if being a 'smart' battery (HA!) makes any difference or can I just take it to Home Depot and throw it in the used battery bin? My fear is of the damn thing exploding. A ticking time bomb, maybe?

So, any thoughts?

Paypal even refuses to get involved. Ticked at them also.

And we don't have a local haze roses waste disposal here in the USA. Guess I'll Google what to do with it.See? I'm still learning.

There are some auto repair shops that may also take your battery since car batteries need to be disposed of in the same manner as LiPos. We have had some customers use that method.
