    Battery test charging from 8%-100% Timelapse, in case you were wondering how fast it would charge, but you should never fly bellow 20-15%, this was for educational purposes only

    Thanks for sharing, @Nick Ti. For a quick answer when viewing this thread, Nick has been able to charge his Mavic battery from 8% to 100% in 1 hour and 3 minutes.

    On average, the charge time you should expect when charging from 20% to 100% will be about 45 minutes. It is not recommended to run your battery below 15% unless you are conditioning your battery (which should be done about every 10-15 charge cycles).

    Safe and happy flying!

    I'm reading that conditioning the battery should only be done if you suspect an issue or cell imbalance, I don't think DJI even suggest it should be done at all now..

    This is simply best practice based on hundreds of flight hours with lithium batteries over the years.

    I bow to your superior knowledge, it's just that DJI no longer think it necessary enough to even mention it in their battery care pdf, so I guess their belief is it's unnecessary. They certainly would not want the forum 'whingers' banging on about lack of instruction. :confused: Personally, I'll follow DJI instructions..

    I think so too. There is probably a good reason DJI removed that recommendation from their manuals. I don't recommend you do it simply based on the fact that it's common practice on some non-DJI batteries.
