over charged
allowed to go too low in voltage
drawing too many amps
etc.

could be any of those.

Boeing -

A puffed battery is a damaged battery, so think carefully before continuing to use them. If all of your lipos are puffing after a period of time, you are almost certainly abusing them in one of the ways mentioned in the previous post.
