The saga ends:

Quote
The good news is that
the V2 is perfectly fine. The bad news is that your batteries are
nearing the end of their life. The black Tekkeon is actually bulging, so
I would advise you to not use or charge that battery anymore and to
recycle it. The silver battery also has a very slight bulge and it
doesn't hold it's rated capacity, but it can most likely still be
useful.

I can fix those battereis for ya :D

I ordered a new one already, but at some point in the future I may have you fix one of the old ones so I have a spare.

Thanks for the update, SS.  Glad to hear it was just the batteries -- sure beats a major problem with the V2.  Best of luck with the new batteries, hope everything goes well!

A friend sent me this link: http://www.tekkeon.com/recall/ . . . Looking back at when I bought the battery to when this problem started, it was probably only out of warranty for a couple weeks. It was purchased outside the date range they list, but I'd think Grace doesn't sell tons of Tekkeons, so maybe this was one of the recalled ones. Would be nice to have a brand new replacement for backup  ;D I've submitted the serial to find out.

Check this thread http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=107694.0 for specific serial numbers that were in the original recall notice as well as a few reports from others (including me) who have had various problems with some models of Tekkeons. Maybe your battery falls in the affected serial # ranges even if it doesn't fall within the specified date range.

Turns out it's not a recall. Oh well.
