Hey man I had the same thing happen to me a few months back. I was offloading pics after I landed the motors weren’t spinning but the drone was on and my battery hit 0% and died when I put it on the charger NOTHING!! I tried car charger, rapid charger standard nothing helped. Had to send to DJI and they replaced free even after warranty was over.

It might be worth checking exact dates and the DJI warranty period on batteries.

Same on my ma2 battery, I realized it wouldn’t charge and knew it had a 6 month warranty, but stupid me thought it was Jan 18 when it was actually Dec 18th ( the 6 month date), and I got busy with life and kept forgetting to put warranty claim in, thinking I would do it right after the holidays. Well after holidays I realized I somehow counted wrong months in my head, BUT DJI still replaced as a full warranty, it only had 40-50 charge cycles ( has to be under 100 for warranty) and was in flawless condition. I have seen some complaints with posts about the DJI customer service, but I have had a few situations since June that DJI seemed to extend superior customer service to me, I have no complaints. On 2 occasions not this one, I actually paid the $45 to 2 day air the ma2 to California from New Jersey, just because the free ground label could take 5-7 days transit and with COVID this year shipping on a lot of ground items have taken twice as long in some instances. But again I was slightly out of battery warranty and no questions asked
