I woke up this morning sat up and grabbed my phone off my nightstand like I do every morning and dropped it instantly, it was extremely hot. I turned on the screen and saw that my batter was scolding 55c it's normally 27 - 29c when I check it throughout the day. I am really concerned about the longevity of my battery and phone. Was the battery hot enough to permanently damage any of the components? Is the battery safe to use or is it ruined? There doesn't appear to be any swelling.

This is the battery I have and the case I am using. http://www.ianker.com/product/70SMI9300-B1B72A/859

Wrong forum, check the very first thread.

Sounds like your battery is going to rupture, throw it away now.

Right, like i'm going to throw away a brand new $40 battery. Where else would I post this? It's a Q and fits under Help. I also searched Google for at least an hour and couldn't find any good information pertaining to the safe temp range.
