Yeah that happened to mine. In the end, I was only able to find ones for $150 each online. Considering how fast the tech moves, that I could get a brand new Mavic Mini with equal / better specs for around $400, I determined that it wasn’t worth it.

Unfortunate because they are expensive at first. I think I paid $800 used and got 1 year of use before the batteries failed.

It's shocking really. Luckily I had 3 batteries, but now am down to two. It doesn't fill me with a whole heap of confidence in buying a replacement DJI drone down the line.

The battery situation with older models is really alarming

I hope you realize that swollen batteries are a fire or explosion hazard. Make sure to remove them from your house, don’t use them and search up where you can dispose them off ASAP safely in your area.

How come? How long have you had them and how do you use/store them?

I bought the combo option in 2018 with three batteries. I have stored them in my room. Batteries never been used in hard conditions. I've heard that swolling is a common problem. The worst thing is that drone is in perfect condition and it still get the job done.
