    How could this be? If had this P3A about 1.5 months and used the battery about 6 times. What could have caused this? Please help me understand if I did something wrong.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Batteries have a high failure rate. This is one reason they have a short warranty period. Since it is under warranty, I would contact your retailer or DJI.

    Did you fly close to low voltage cuttoff and leave it sitting around before bect charge by any chance?

    No, I always let them cool and recharge them up before I store it until the next flight

    Update on battery issue...DJI replaced it with no problem, about a 2 week turnaround

    What did you do to get them to replace it? Did you ship the drone back to the repair place and they just sent the drone back with a new battery?
