    in my own experience, which i already posted before on this site, i had an issue with my first battery after 12 cycles, the thing is i didn't break in the lipo, i did discharge it to 15% once before its 10th cycle, stored it 2 days with 100% full charge, charged it directly after flight waited around 15min~20min only, well my battery started to degrade and eventually failed after its 15th cycle, i have followed the manual as provided by DJI didn't go on any exception, results are as follows:

    New battery received performing Break-in in Process now, 4th cycle battery holding great flight time 12min 50% left, Storing at 50%, charging only before flights 1h~2h preflight, storing at average 22de
    gree celsius, cooldown time 30min before charge, cell under load very close equally, waiting on my 12 cycle to compare it with the old one and maybe prove that the break in process might have been the reason why i lost my old one and the low level drain i did also.

    hope this helps who ever needs it
