Thanks N017RW. I still want to poll the forum to see the relationship of lifespan % and flight time though. (70 discharge is pretty low but thanks for giving me a reference point). A famous post showed with 89% lifespan 33 discharge, and battery looks normal, fully charged, last in air less than a min. Want to see how often this actually happens, or it was just an odd lemon.
And wondering why my two batteries behave differently, and if we can reach any explanation to that.
How is the aftermarket batts doing for you? Same cycle but cheaper? Or they last longer cycles? Will assistant software and latest 3.14 firmware recognize/work well with them? All or many intelligent LiPo batts vendors have encryption on the batts circuits and cracking the code once might not guarantee future compatibility. That is my concern on aftermarket batts. Your thoughts? Tks.All my P2 batteries are now aftermarket Venom 5500 mah.
Just bringing the link back up ian .We've got a big thread for this already: http://www.phantompilots.com/threads/the-dji-bad-battery-registry.26733/

I thought battery is an universal issue? Is it not? Even helicopter would have similar issue. OR, is it just P2 gets this?Since this thread doesn't seem to be about the FC40, P1, or P3, perhaps it should be moved to P2.
Since it was posted in the General Forum, it would have been nice it said P2 in the title.
You show a P2 battery moon..An FC40 or a P1 do not use it. There's a P2 section where this would have been more appropriate to haveI thought battery is an universal issue? Is it not? Even helicopter would have similar issue. OR, is it just P2 gets this?
Agreed. a problem was that I have P2V not P2 so I never looked at P2. And there is no shared forum for all P2x. and yet all three versions use same battery.You show a P2 battery moon..An FC40 or a P1 do not use it. There's a P2 section where this would have been more appropriate to have
put this in. As ian already showed ya the link on these battery's and there's most likely all or more than you want to know about them there .
We try and keep all we can on a specific battery in one spot to compare them.
Battery's are a universal issue but not all the same . Look in that thread and if you don't see what you are looking for than post in it and someone will answer you .

As you can see nobody post results here but me, and no one should now. But if someone has answer for the serial number differences, the logo, font and the blinkings feel free to answer/help me specifically. But no need to post results anymore as that P2 sticky serves the purpose better.
Hi Jason, thank you for such a nice video!!! The battery shown in this video is the P1 alike battery right? Are they called intelligent LiPo as well at their time? Or "intelligent" is referring to P2 generation and beyond? By intelligent DJI meant to say the battery housing has built-in features including over charging and over discharging prevention. Soooo, can we assume that the "intelligent" circuit in the batteries will shield us within the "safety zone"? Like the going below 30% to 15%, and even 8% thing are actually still above the "never discharge to less than 20%" safety zone mentioned in this video?? Or the % shown by P2 battery and app are the true %? If it is latter case, then we indeed should never go below 20% and I shall adjust my flight accordingly by landing/powering off above 20% all the time not pushing it a bit. AND, Jason, your process of always discharging the battery down to 8% is supposed to be very very bad process then. How are your batteries now? If they are still performing well, then probably the "intelligent" feature is indeed shielding us within safety zone?? The video shows the optimum discharging is 200-300 cycles yet most people get 50-70 only... I don't believe DJI would evilly use inferior battery to damp the product popularity. They made the quad thing affordable to general public amateurs in the first place! So WHAT is the problem then? I shall stop charging battery full when getting home after flight for sure, I would have them charged to 60% then store them, away, and charge to 100% just the night before next flight then. (usually one week or two weeks later). Will see what happens. I did discharge one of my battery until it couldn't power on anymore. How stupid was I! Again, will see how hurt it would be to that battery. Thanks again Jason for your post.Here's a video I came across yesterday while for something else. I discharge all my batteries down to 8% before recharging and not after 20 cycles as DJI indicates should be done. The problem with Li-ion/Lipo is over charging which is a more common problem with non DJI chargers.
