Hi All,
Yesterday i was flying in damp conditions, i did my shoot and at the end of shoot i noticed a couple of the batteries had got damp, anyway i put them in phantom and flew fine, after i landed and started to pack away i removed the battery and noticed the water detection sticker had got red marks around the edge, will this mean i have voided any chance of a service as DJI will think it has been submerged in water when it hasnt.

I did a google.  My guess is that DJI will believe the red around the edges as shown in your vid is from humidity rather than being dunked in the water - because this page in the link below shows examples of what a sticker would look like if it was submerged...

If second hand and not bought as refurb from DJI ... if its age is outside warranty period ... surely its not an issue ?

But as others mention - because the sticker is not fully red - it would likely not be taken as submerged.

I just had a look at my old 'naffed' P3S that did get fully submerged and that sticker is 100% red ....  no mistaking it.
