Is there any way to repair a bad cell on my P4P battery? One of the cells is reporting under voltage. I tried to drain the battery down to 5% as per instruction on the DJI Go app, but after I recharged the battery fully one its level indicator flashes meaning the cell number 2 is still bad. Should I just toss it?

Hi, thanks for the inquiry. The batteries of the drone have a 6 months warranty and Charge Cycle less than 200 Times, if your battery is not longer than 6 months then you can contact our support for further help. Please see the link below for reference.

Thanks for your help, everyone! Unfortunately, my battery is out of warranty now as it is over a year old. Maybe I didn't use it much cause the bad cell?

I would toss it before your drone falls, batteries are much less expensive than replacing everything.

If you have a bad cell in the battery i would simply replace it. Certainly do not ever fly with that battery you could if you wish use it for doing bench testing or setting up the drone prior to a flight.
You cannot recover a bad cell in the battery

Thanks for the advice! I will just recycle the battery. I don't want it to fail on me while updating the firmware too if I don't use it for flight.
