    yeah, you should
    try to "format" that battery - charge it, discharge it to little bit under 10 % and charge it again
    if it won't help, dispose of it
    or you should be prepared that it can fail anytime

    One of your Cell is showing degradation, I would suggest you to discharge to 4%, cool it down if hot and then charge back to 100%. Check its capacity and cell to cell differences on DJI Go app.

    If you already deep discharged it and charged it, I would check that questionable cell next.

    Everything is the latest. I just did a hover flight to 4% and cell one was still low for the first few minutes then six minutes in then again at around 14 minutes in. In DJI Go I could see cell one was low the whole time. I will let it cool for a couple hours then charge and test again. If not looks like I have a bootup and testing battery that will not be flight certified in my book.
