I crashed my P4P the other day. The drone is repairable, but the battery was ejected and is damaged. There's no way to repair the batteries, so I have to dispose of it. Does anyone know how to do that safely?

If you have the ability to fully discharge the battery it can be discharged and discarded in the garbage.

However, DJI employs electronic circuitry and PC boards in the battery case which are things landfills want recycled separately. Meaning the battery needs to be separated from the case and electronics. Same applies to Yuneec batteries.
