    I was inspecting my craft today and noticed one of the Battery's had small cracking and protrusion from the inside. Should I be concerned? Would DJI replace?

    That's a known issue with the original P4 batteries. While it's purely cosmetic, DJI might replace it if it's less than 6 months old. Try contacting DJI support.

    It's caused by the pressure from the release button when pressed in while removing the battery. I guess the plastic is just a bit too weak.

    i believe the new version with the brighter LEDs has a fix for this issue. one of my original batteries has a hairline crack there :( not sure if i want to bother sending it in or not.

    The old P4 battery CPPT000342 had cracking issues and was replaced by the CPPT000399 version. I note that one of the Amazon resellers is selling these, supposedly brand-new (some dispute about that, apparently) for $105. It's Amazon-fulfilled, so I presume that that means their return policy applies. Link
