Default Bulging Zerolemon?

I'm a full year now with my zerolemon and I love it. In the last month or so I've noticed the battery is bulging and warping. It no longer fits snug in the battery compartment and is pushing the back case ajar. Soon it won't fit.

Has anyone else seen this? I put it on the standard charger all night and use it during the day but nothing excessive.

I have a backup that is still in the box from when I got a second zerolemon a while ago that I'm going to start using.

That's a sure sign of a serious defect.. Stop using it and chuck it out before something nasty happens.
No stupid giant pics here! Just two lines of text!

Good advice, I'll discontinue using it immediately. Thanks!

Here are pics of a good one next to the bad one.
