Heyo Dhilip_1

If the battery have started to swollen, get rid of that thing. It's just a matter of time before that thing will explode on you.
Cheers.

The wear level is how much battery charge you've shaved off the lithium-ion battery. The 98.5% tells you that you only have 1.5% of your designed capacity available to be charged. The rest of the battery cells have died and aren't working.

If the battery has any physical damage or show signs of swelling bit it as soon as possible you risk fire and explosion

Would you want your battery to do a note 7
