If you are a new DJI Mini 2 owner and need to activate DJI Care Refresh or need to register your drone, you will need your drone serial number.
Your drone serial number is a unique 14-digit identification number required for various purposes. It is basically your drone’s number plate.
If you don’t know the DJI Mini 2 serial number location, there are three places to get your S/N:
- You can find your DJI Mini 2 serial number on the side of the box.
- You can find it inside the battery compartment.
- You can find it from inside your DJI Fly App
Let me explain each of them in a bit more detail so that you can find exactly what you are looking for.
Apparently, there is a lot of confusion among users about the DJI Mini 2 serial number location so let’s see where you can find the S/N.
DJI Mini 2 serial number format
The DJI Mini 2 serial number is a 14-digit Alphanumeric number that is unique for each unit. Here is an example of a serial number you might find on your Mini 2.
Important note: To avoid confusion between the digit zero (0) and the English alphabet “O”, DJI states that they only use the digit zero in the serial number. So every ‘0’ is a digit zero.

Serial number on the box sticker
This is the easiest way to find your Mini 2 serial number if you still have your drone box.
Before shipping, DJI puts a removable sticker on every box that contains the model, color, version, and the serial number of the drone inside. This is where you will find your drone’s S/N.
Remember to look for a pasted sticker on one of the clean sites. The serial number is printed on the removable sticker. It is not printed on the body of the box itself. (check the image above)
Serial number inside battery compartment
If you don’t have your box or your mom (or wife) just threw it out, don’t worry, you can still find your Mini 2 serial number inside the battery compartment. Check the image below
Open the battery compartment cover and inside the cover, you will find the standard sticker label pasted.
On the top left corner of the cover, you will see a QR code and on top of the QR code, you will see your 14-digit S/N number printed.
Serial number inside the DJI Fly App
If you have already activated your DJI Mini 2, you can easily find your serial number inside the DJI Fly App.
This is helpful in case you have lost your box, and the sticker inside your battery compartment is erased with use over time.
To find your serial number via the DJI Fly App, follow the following simple steps:
- Open the App screen and tap on the 3-dots in the top right corner.
- From the menu, tap on the “About” section on the right side.
- Scroll down and you will see “Flight Controller SN” and a 14-digit alphanumeric number in front of it. This is your serial number.
You will need your serial number for both drone registration, and in case you need to purchase DJI care refresh insurance.
You can find your serial number either on the box sticker, inside your drone battery compartment, or inside your DJI Fly App.
