You can fly your mavic into a wall and if you have refresh, they will give you another one..

That's really weird that you battery suffered a meltdown at room temperature. Unless you room was 100+ F temperature, operating at full capacity... It may break.

What do you mean by "meltdown"? Were you charging it at the time? Using DJI charger? How many charge cycles had it had? Been in any crashes? Any previous physical damage?

I got a brand new Air using DJI Care refresh - very good service!

DJI Care does have restrictions within the contract as to what is covered depending on what happened. DJI Care is designed to cover damage from a crash, not other warranty type problems. I think you if read the DJI Care contract you will find that what DJI told you is correct. Also I believe the warrant on batteries is different than the warranty on the aircraft.

DJI can claim anything, but they should consider this a warranty claim, not a Refresh claim. Now that they have denied your Refresh claim, it's time to stick up for yourself, and file a warranty claim, then follow it up and document your every email and conversation with them. I would not pay for the repair they might try to charge you, which might be hundreds of dollars. Be diligent, firm, persistent and stick to your guns. That usually works with them.

What was the meltdown? Literally melted or just failed...

Warranty I recall is 6 months up to 200 flights/recharge cycles or something similar... if it physically 'melted' unlikely you can attach to Mavic to read recharge cycles/age since activation.... so you have to get the serial number and open a warranty case
