It's my understanding that they balloon because they're sealed. When gases are produced inside the cells from abuse, they don't have a means of venting like nimh and nicads do.

True, but what is the scientific explanation to lipo ballooning syndrome?

An electro-chemical reaction occurs inside the cell when they are over charged or over discharged. The resulting reaction produces a gas which causes the cell expansion.
