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

either way though, it looks like this battery isn't safe for normal flying anymore, which really sucks

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.

My advise is not to use. Check out YouTube Dronevally on DJI batteries

Yeah I think I'll just discharge it to storage voltage and decide what to do with it later on cos I really don't want to toss it yet

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...
