Odd, I have the 536 and that has never happened. 
The groundy has occasionally not slotted it in correctly, but there is no power so it’s obvious. 
Have you managed to replicate it falling out on the ground? (If you see what I mean)

Not had a problem personally.  The 200x batteries  seems to lock in perfectly (although they are a little fragile, alas).  The 300 batteries are a little prone to being a bit more fiddly to lock in initially, but as @Mick Dempsey reckoned, you know instantly due to the lack of power!

 

I guess it’s a case of getting the groundy used to inserting the battery and then blipping the saw to confirm it is in properly.

I’ve noticed the battery releasing a few times now. Not dropping out, but a ‘first stage release’ if you like. T540i with 200x batteries. Considering doing as others have and putting a releasable strap around the battery unit to make sure it can’t come out.

This has happened to me a number of times now. The battery hasn't fallen out completely, but has become dislodged in the saw. the only way I know this has happened is when the saw fails to start. I have made an adjustable strap to hold the battery in place which seems to work OK and only cost a few quid to make.
