    How is the battery charge count determined, does the battery know when it has been plugged in to the charger and count that, or does it get a count when it is placed into the Phantom?

    I ask as I have a battery that I noticed was at 19 charges, ready for the 8% cycle routine but I only flew it down to 30% as I was still in the process of flying. After I flew another battery I figured I would place the 19 charge battery back in and fly until it reached 10% and then let it cycle down to 8% but when I looked at the charge count when I put it back in the Phantom it showed 21 charges. So that had me wondering if it counts charges from being charged or placed into the Phantom?
