Is there a way to "rejuvenate" a battery?

Phantom 1.5, using the Multistar 5200mah...

I have my loaded voltage set to 10.4 in the software.

I takeoff, fly around, and land around 10.6v.... but when I charge I'm only getting ~2200 - 2600mah back into the battery! Seems there is still a lot left here.

Suggestions?

What is a Phantom 1.5?
Sounds like your voltages are too low.

I've done what you do and believe I have ruined a couple batteries. I'll be following this thread, and hoping. :)

A 1.5 is a phantom 1 transplanted into a phantom 2 shell with an upgrade board. this allows you to run the h3-3D gimbal, aftermarket batteries up to 5,200mah, as well as the Phantom 2 batteries.

so it's basically a cheaper version of a phantom 2 that is free from using proprietary batteries.

No rejuvenation for LiPos.

When you are done flying whats your resting voltage on the battery if you take a reading directly??? Being voltage drop is usually about .6 volts it seems like you very well might be landing when you have a battery thats almost still only down to about 50% charge

If you are starting off charging on a 5200mah battery thats still already about 50% full That would seem perfectly normal to only be able to put 2200 - 2600mah back into the battery before its full and cant take any more.

After 10 mins or so, comes back up to 11.1v or close to it.
