    2 bad batteries in 2 days.
    Not sure what I'm doing wrong. All my batteries are original with 2.6 firmware.
    1 battery has puffed up with only 27 cycles.

    The other is new and untouched. Tried to charge it to replace the puff battery only to find out has Low Discharging Temp Warning.

    The phantom assist shows ridicoulous temperature readings.

    Besides sending back, is there a fix for it?
    I tried holding the button for 5 seconds to see if any cells are damage - didnt work.
    I tried starting the motors to discharge via phantom - didnt work.

    That's a very high temperature. Hotter than the surface of the sun actually (presuming it's in Celsius). Let it cool off before you touch it.

    That test tells you how much battery life is left. It doesn't indicate the condition of the cells.

    Tapping tells you how much charge is left.

    Try holding it for 5 seconds. The red light will blink.

    Which, as I said, tells you how much of the battery's life (not its current charge/level) is left. It does not indicate bad cells as some have said.

    Here's the description from the manual:



    There's a jerk that has posted a video on YouTube telling people to toss their batteries if all the LEDs don't light claiming that it indicates bad cells. He's disabled comments on the video to prevent people from posting the correct info.
