This is the result of a lithium battery failure in progress. I'm afraid to open the bags, and am not sure how to dispose of the things. I fear if they are put into the recycle trail unwatched they will just be a source of detonation.
I trimmed off the leads nearst the batteries as possible, and there is still a small sensor board soldered to the battery terminals I need to figure out how to get off.

|Top removed showing battery|
|Circuit board is forced up. System still works.|
|More direct view of the bow forced into the circuit|
|The battery is like two balloons blown up.|
