The battery in my jetpack has swollen up and won't let me put the back cover on. I went to the local Verizon Store and they said they could not help me that this is caused by leaving it charged for to long. We don't leave it charged for extended periods. It looks like it's going to explode. It's been swelling up for the last 6 months and finally it blew the cover off of it and I can't get it back on. How do I get a new battery?

I have 3 of the above JetPacks which have swollen batteries. That said, I charge all 3 from a 3rd party USB charger. This may be overcharging the batteries. Has anyone had the swelling occur using the Verizon supplied charger?
Sorry to hear about the swollen batteries in your Jetpacks, 5H2DA. We take your safety very seriously and would recommend that you discontinue use of the Jetpacks immediately and take the Jetpacks in to the nearest corporate store for evaluation. Also, going forward, we would recommend that you use only the original chargers that came with the devices. To find the nearest corporate store, you can go here: vzw.com/stores Select filters and then "Verizon Company Store" after your search. Does this clarify?
