Follow these tips to maintain your DJI Phantom batteries and ensure they are being properly stored when not in use:
Power up your DJI drone, start DJI GO, and set the Time to Discharge setting (see the screenshot below) to the number of days you'd like your batteries to wait before starting to auto discharge down to the storage level. Since this setting is stored on the battery, you'll need to set it while each battery is installed in your drone. You'll need to reset this setting after new firmware is installed on your batteries.
When your batteries are idle (meaning you don't press the battery button), they will start to auto discharge down to the storage level after that number of days has been reached. Depending on the current charge level, it could take a battery 2 to 3 additional days to discharge down to the storage level. The batteries will be slightly warm to the touch while they are discharging. Pressing the battery button at any time during this process will cancel the auto discharge process and make your batteries wait that number of days before attempting to discharge again.
When not using your batteries, maintain the charge level like this:
Keep the current battery charge level within the red box in the image below. When you press the battery button, the 2nd or 3rd battery light should either be solid or blinking.
Don't press the battery button to check the current charge level. On most DJI batteries, pressing the battery button will reset the time to discharge day counter back to zero.
For example, if you have the Time to Discharge setting set to 10 days and you press the battery button on the 9th day, the battery will wait a total of 19 days before it attempts to discharge itself down to the storage level.
