Can you risk a 600€ drone for a 60€ battery?My opinion is keep that battery for download videos and photos from spark and not for flying.Just buy another one for safe flights...

If you are lucky, it is only the plastic tabs that are broken.  However, there could potentially be other damage inside which could be an even bigger issue.  I'm not sure I'd trust having a damaged LiPo battery hanging around in my house due to the dangerous fire potential.

Zip tie it to the spark J/K!  I would not risk using that battery what so ever.

If you only have one, then permanently glue to the spark and recharge via USB =)
Dont throw it though.. See if you can strip it keep the board and battery and weigh it. Interesting how much a stripped battery would weigh..

Is the crash caused by pilot error or not? If it is not the pilot error, I would recommend you to send it in for data analysis. Also, bad battery is not available to repair, replacement will be recommended for warranty case.

Thanks you for your recommendations! For security I will not use it.

Please, can you tell me an adapter on eBay to use as a power bank?
