    image.jpg image.jpg I looked closely at my battery that came with the Inspire 1 and thought I should mention this. They say watch out for any kind of bulging. My battery looks perfectly fine on all sides but is not perfectly a flat surface on its bottom.

    Is that ok? Is that a concern?

    I've had it less than a month and this is the way it looked out of the box. Thought I'd mention this now than later.

    I will post a pic or two to illustrate my observation.

    Perfectly normal.
    Same on all of mine and I've got 8 of them :)

    For comparison, here is a bad TB48 Inspire battery, which is swollen. See this link: http://www.unifourpeds.com/images/BadBattery.MOV
    In this short video file, note the swelling of the case with obvious trapped gas.

    DJI promptly replaced it at no charge, because it was in the warrantee period. I still have 7 fully functioning Inspire batteries.
