    An internal short is a "throw a part at it" fix...if it does, that was the problem. Since the battery is fairly new, I would have it warrantied and see what happens.

    load test the battery. this will stress out the internal cells and any defect is normally revealed. just be sure the battery is fully charged . also have them do a double test just to be sure its with no issues.

    In my experience, testing will not always find a shorted battery.
