Yes the case is held on by adhesive attached the the cells on the top and the bottom this allows for the cells to expand in case of damage to both alow for safe swelling of the cells and to give a visual sign of cell dmage to the user.
If you glue the case together you lose this feature. On our 4800 the decal used is a soft vinyl which will stretch easily.
Batteries are held in place on all cars with a strap or tap across the top this secures the case and allows it to be an excellent defense against damage from side impact or from being dropped or bent. Also the rounded hollow side allows for energy absorption.
We had an issue during a small production run where the cases where not porperly secured during the application of the adhesive if you have a case that the top or bottom comes loose then you can simply back to us for repair or simply apply a thin layer of good quality double sided tape and press the case back together.
