Auto discharge on Mavic 2 Pro batteries


#1

Hi

How do I set the auto discharge on my Mavic 2 Pro batteries?

Ta

In Go4 - with the M2P connected to the RC/device - select the ••• at top right, then the battery option on the menu … and it’s about the 6th item under there.

Need to do it for each battery, I think. (So long since I set mine on the MP I can’t remember.)


#3

yes … it’s only applied to the battery that’s on the drone … so you have to go through this procedure for every one.

Thank you

I don’t think you can change it on Mavic 2.

I couldn’t find it but let me know if you work it out.


#6

I do seem to recall someone else mentioning that … now that you do.

Well, they say you learn something new every day…

I never knew that… :+1:t2:

Was very aware of firmware updates per battery etc but it didn’t even cross my mind re discharge settings. I shall check this out on my Inspire too.

And I didn’t know that either… :face_with_monocle:

So that’s me in credit now, I don’t need to learn anything tomorrow :blush:

So what does the MP2 default to? 10 days?

Can it be changed with a direct parameter mod? :thinking:

Re for MP yes… I had to do it for each battery .
Would be nice if you could just set it once on the drone and that setting gets applied to all batteries as soon as they powered up the drone.


#9

Not sure.

It’s a battery parameter rather than AC so not even sure how you’d even go about it.


#10

oh gawd for fear of having rotten veg thrown my way…why would one want to discharge the batteries?

Because they’re bloody expensive and they retain a better life expectancy and performance if not stored for long periods at full charge. :wink:


#12

Aaaah. ok Thankyou for that.

I usually charge them up in between flights, where I try and give them run once a week. Should I be discharging instead of charging ?


#13

If I know I won’t be flying for a week or so (like currently - with the crap weather forecast) I just leave them to eventually auto discharge and then recharge the day before I hope to fly again.
On the MP (and most others) you can set the number of days before they discharge … I think I have mine set to 5 days.

Checking them (with a short press of the button) will re-start the clock until they start to discharge … I seem to recall.


#14

Being a bit backward in battery maintenance appreciation it hadnt crossed my mind to consider the need to discharge them. :see_no_evil:

I assume setting the days to discharge is in the Go4 App ?

btw, thanks for the info here! #Learningalways

Yes - need to start up with each battery in turn and set on each.

They will have a default set (can’t recall how many days - 5 or 7) so no real need to change unless you are (a) curious to see what they are set to or (b) have a specific preference/need.

Three- dots top right - then select the battery icon in the menu - it’s in there … :+1:

Edit: Ah - you have the M2P … so I believe it’s an unchangeable parameter for that one.


#16

Ah I see. So already set then? Dont want us dabbling in battery magic then. Ta DJI!


#17

Pretty much.

Anyway - you can check if it’s there - but, from what I recall others saying, it has been removed from our dabbling.


#18

Cool. Will do. Cheers again :ok_hand:
