I have my Logitech Harmony 890 remote of 10 or 11 months. Do not work now because the battery Logitech is distended and the lid will not close. I've had quite a lot of people seem that tells me this is atypical and rarely happens. The remote and the base sit in the hot zone or an area with direct sunlight. From $40 to $50 each, would be expensive to keep replacing the batteries if it is a problem. An engineer friend of mine asked if there is a problem with the database design that will cause the battery to react that way. Anyone have any idea for this? Please just let me know if anyone has any idea.
