Hi, so I got two new batteries from DJI as a replacement for the ones that were puffed.
So, as I have 3 batteries, two are with 30+ charges and one is 105 charges but it's working perfectly fine.
My question is, should I bring two new batteries out of hibernation or not, if I'm not planning to use them anytime soon?
 
I would bring them out and use them, keep them in circulation.

That way, you have batteries of different ages, so that later when some start to die of natural causes (rather than defects such as the bulge), they don't all start expiring around the same time.

I rotate mine, numbered with a sticker used round-robin, so they all get used at around the same rate (so none stay unused for too long a period of time). That way, those 2 new batteries will always be 30 cycles behind a couple of existing batteries, 105 cycles behind the oldest.
