I just noticed this odd bump on one of my P3's intelligent batteries. Should I be concerned about anything?

What I mean is that LiPo batteries can and will swell if not cared for properly and I'm asking if the bump feels like a swelling of the actual battery or just a fold in a loose label.

oh yeah I'm positive it's the battery itself, but I thought when a lipo swells the whole battery kind of bloats with it, not only in one small line

WAIT A Minute....don't dji warrant battery's......they all have a serial number....I THINK they are under warranty for 3 months against defects...Give them a call and see what they say...Unless the batterys over a year old ? If you call them we all want to hear how its worked out OR never worked out !

I wish they were still under warranty. Too bad they're all relatively old now, about a year old.

If all you will do is throw it, why not take it a part and have a look, go gentle, watch a few videos, you may find your answer and it may even be usable if its just a case damage,
the fact you say it pushes in and comes back out actually says it isnt a cell behind it, as they go hard,
As you are throwing it, take a chance lol

I suppose there isn't any harm trying that...
