I'm curious if anyone has any information on the P3P battery discharge rate when not in use. For example, all charged up, then not used for a couple months, then headed out to fly.

As a rule, I don't see it as an issue because of the shorter charge time but I'm curious if anyone has any input.

Thanks in advance.

Your scenario is 'death' for a LiPo.

LiPos like to be stored at 50% charge.

However, recently DJI introduced self-discharging features into their intelligent batteries.

Somewhere around 10 days of inactivity it will begin to discharge to near 50% in a couple of days for a fully charged batt.

Google 'LiPo use and storage' or similar. There's tons of info on this.
