Bargain and many years of flight left for you.Well it seems all is not completely lost for me and my MA1. By some fluke I checked my local kijiji ads yesterday and sure enough someone was selling a lot of accessories including 5 batteries (I tested them all and they have between 20-35 charges on them), controller, 12 props, charger and car charger, two sets of joysticks, otg cables, landing gear, nd 16 filter, prop guards and the travel bag. He was asking $250 canadian for the lot so I gave him $180 and the deal was done. I feel so relieved now that I can enjoy my Mavic for a long time as I now have 8 batteries! They lost the drone so his loss is my gain.

Great advice, I'll def be rotating them. I keep a good eye on all my lipo's as i'm also an avid RC boat enthusiast. Running 3 and 4 cells right now, getting a sweet 6S Proboat Sonicwake for Xmas (treating myself), just hope the drone can keep up to it during filming!Meant to say too, don't be tempted to put some away for later, or they will likely deteriorate faster naturally discharging over time, maybe even hibernate or they could 'brick'.
Use them all rotating through the numbers, to keep relatively even number of cycles.
Keep them at around 50% - 60% charge, checking them every couple of months if leaving through winter or long periods between flying.
If they go down to say 1 led solid 1 flashing, pop them on until 2 solid 3rd flashing should do the trick.
Search the forum a bit. You do not need to pay license fees. You do this with a free program and a $5 card.I've been through this problem. Didn't use my Air 1 for about a year after I bought it (had only about 10 flights on 2 batteries). When I unpacked it again I had 2 "dead" batteries. No lights, no sign of life. Watched a lot of videos about reviving them. Requires a "probe" and license to a proprietary pgm (total $100-$150), and then you have to disassemble the battery and do some very tricky soldering. One guy replaced the cells with 18650's (neat idea), but his video was in Russian. I've built/rebuilt 7-8 freestyle/racing drones so I can solder, but I would not attempt what I saw in the videos.
Next step I bought a couple of used batteries through Ebay and this forum for $60 for each battery. It's been a good experience. I asked the sellers for confirmation it was an Air 1 battery, how much usage, etc., and I got pictures and screen shots confirming 1 had less than 10 flights and the 2nd less than 20, and that the cells were balanced when charged.
One of the guys I bought from runs a repair service (mostly bigger DJI models) and he agreed to give the Air batteries a go for $30 each if successful and $10 if not. There was not much to lose so I sent them to him, and he sent them back in a few days alive and well. Now have 4 working bats.
If you have "dead" batteries because they sat around for too long and the charge fell below the battery chip cutoff for recharging, I suggest you get in touch with Tom at Repair Parts Resale | Hyperflite Drones | United States
