Mavic 2 Pro batteries

I was just wondering if it makes a difference if I charge my Mavic 2 Pro batteries right before flying or after my previous flight?

I mean does doing it like this affect lifetime of battery or anything?

Batteries don’t like being stored at high charge for extended periods.

It’s probay better to charge day before you fly than having them charged all the time.

I usually charge on the Friday if I know I’m flying that weekend. Sometimes that doesn’t happen and I just allow then to self discharge.

One thing I do watch out for is storing them with a very low charge. You don’t want to run it down to 0 percent then store for weeks on end.

Ok, will keep that in mind next time, the reason I normally charge them after each flight is so I don’t forget to charge them the next time

If you fly regularly Im not sure how much of an impact it would have.

Theres been quite a few times I’ve had the chance to fly and no time to charge the batteries.

I charged 4 last weekend but didnt get round to flying so I know they are good for tomorrow.

I have noticed that the batteries for the M2P do discharge on their own. Why is that? Can you turn them off?

It’s a feature to protect the cells.

They start to discharge after 10 days of non use.

Previous models let you adjust the amount of days before discharge but mavic 2 and Air is set at 10 days.
