Hi All,
I know this has been covered a million times but bear with a green newbie with little understanding of when and what to do to condition your battery.
I have a Phantom 3 Standard and have used it every chance I could since I got it 4 weeks ago. I have at this stage only the one battery.

Do you run the battery completely flat to condition it? And then charge it fully?
This gets done every 20 or so charges?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

I always run it down to 20%. No need to go to 8% unless cell voltages are way off.

There are lots of opinions on this and the actual effectiveness of some is dubious.
Just follow the DJI battery guidelines and you'll be fine.

A few people have tried to condition their batteries and found that it made no difference. I've never seen anyone post that it did make a difference.
