Hey all

I have some issues with my tablet which limits me from flying for more then a month.
My two batteries are both sitting around 50% charged. 2 or 3 leds blinking.

Is it enough for storing them for a long time or there is anything else i should do? Maybe charge them up once a month?

With the auto discharge function in these smart batteries, I don't think that there is really any reason to worry about recharging them during storage. Think about it, a new battery might sit around for a couple of months before bent purchased and used with no problems. As always, make sure that they are fully charge before you use them.

I like to keep my batteries with two lamps green and the third lamp blinking. Without the third lamp blinking, the battery could be down to 38% for all you know.

If I see one with only two lamps, I charge it six minutes, then check it again for the third lamp blinking.

Seeing the third lamp dark makes me apprehensive.

Seeing the third lamp blinking makes me happy.

I just charged one for six minutes a little while ago!

That's just my personal system.

But I'm kind of a nut.

But I'm happy.:grinning:
