    Soooo. Got my DotSquonk. I’ve had it for a couple weeks now, and I’ve been reluctant on buying more batteries for it, so I only have one LG HB 6 for it. It’s had one small drop awhile back, but left no signs of damage after inspection.

    I was just about to throw it on the charge because I noticed some voltage drop. Now I’ve noticed a dent in it, but not in the center of negative like I’ve got in the past from mechs, it’s off to the side and in the middle it’s almost pushed outward. Just need to know if this battery should be tossed. The red dot in the picture is where it’s pushed in.

    Ultimately its your safety, but I would still use that battery if it were mine.

    When in doubt toss it out they say~! Recycle it though.

    I have dents in plenty of mine from drops and they are still providing good service. A friend on here once said if he got rid of all his dented batteries he wouldn't have any batteries.

    I am not familiar with your MOD so that I can't give you an all clear on but with my MOD's the batteries are not loose and the dents are from the spring loaded Negative Terminals.
