Hi all,

I have just I inherited a Mavic Pro original flymore combo.

The drone is ok; but the batteries are completely dead. No LEDs light up. And charging doesn’t work.

Is there any trick that could resurrect them? Or does anyone in the UK want to make an offer for Mavic Pro Flymore Combo without batteries!?

If they are in "Hibernation Mode" you simply connect them to a charger and leave them for about 30min and they should charge. That's only a short-term situation and if they've been flown and then left just sitting they are most likely all three "goners" now.

You can get new batteries for the MP series so it's still a viable system.

Thanks for this.

From 3rd party sellers? DJI don’t seem to have any batteries on their website.

Batteries for the M1P are reasonably priced on ebay. If the ones you have don’t do anything after 24hrs on the charger recycle them. Even if you were to “jump start” them as some suggest can be done a cell can quit working mid flight or just drop below voltage causing the drone to malfunction so flying a $500 drone with a sketchy battery is just a bad idea.

Check out any YouTube videos that show how to revive a dead battery.

If a battery gets low enough on charge that it won’t take a charge it is very likely that internal damage has been done to one of the cells. If, for example, you put it in sport mode and accelerate and climb at the same time, you are putting a high draw on the battery. During that high draw the drone can think it has a dead battery and go into a forced landing or worse, and for sure not the most likely, the battery could catch fire in flight. It just isn’t worth it for a $60 battery.

Some countries you simply won’t get genuine batteries, many overseas sites won’t ship lipos.
Power Extra makes an aftermarket battery, and while I haven’t tried them, or had a need as yet for them, there are many threads here that report they work same in features as the oem batteries.

Try any and all links you find for oem batteries though, you might find someone willing to ship to you.

I have a couple powerextra ones. One died and the other works fine. To be fair I figure it died from long term storage.

I have 2 of the M1P's and love flying them. I have a total of 10 good, flyable batteries and 3 that i only use for ground ops (connecting to the computer, etc.)
