New Mavic Pro with Dead Batteries

Hello all,

This my first post here. I purchased a new Mavic Pro just before COVID hit in March of 2020. As a result of the pandemic I have not been working away from home. So I just opened the box yesterday and I cannot get the batteries to charge.

I contacted DJI support and they simply said the batteries are no good any longer. I am not new to photography, so I thought this was very odd as I own dozens of lithium batteries for cameras.

Are these batteries really just paper weights now?

DJI drone batteries do not age well if you do not care for them like this:

Thanks for that link. Well I guess this is just another loss due to COVID. I have a $1300 paperweight now.
