47 charges isn’t a lot, how we’re you running them? Completely flat all the time or leaving some charge in?

Not good in either case.

I have one of these,myself
Just about 70ish flights, but also 1 year old.
Found out about when it does not wanted to fit easily into the bay.
And warranty is 6 month on batteries or 200 cycles
Anyway, I still use it "on the ground"
Downloading pictures, doing calibrations and such.
Just not charge it over 2 1/2 LEDs and stop using at 20-30, now.
I may have used it a couple of times  to many down to critical.

You would think that an intelligent battery would smart enough to avoid getting pregnant.

Even plain LiPo batteries have ratings far exceeding 200 cycles (unless batteries are repeatedly flattened).

It's get rotate use down to 15%~20% then fully recharge back. Ever since i got the 3rd battery this two seldom use. I only guess it's the weather temperature here are not and humid or the way i charge the battery?

Damn! I have about 60 /70 flights on all my 3 batteries and thankfully they are not inflated.
My Yuneec q 500 battery on the other hand, was inflated after 2 charges!!! And now it’s useless

Even if does fit, then the flight time will be reduced by 2 at least.
It happened with my inflated Yuneec battery
So I ordered a new one on amazon.

Fly safely all

You should STOP using this battery. One of the 3 cells went bad, more charging will likely make it to break and possibly catch fire.
