I do not keep my regular LiPos (non-DJI) fully charged for longer than 48 hours. DJI Batteries have the auto-discharge feature, but I never wait for them to auto-discharge because on newer drones it is locked to 9 days, and in some cases even longer. However, I do keep them for 3 or 4 days fully charged, and with 125 cycles of 3 of them, they still work great!

I try to charge mine to 100% with the intention of discharging them at max 48 hours later. Usually I just charge that day or the night before.

I ALWAYS recharge them manually to about 50-60% as soon as I can after a flight though. One thing I do need to be better about is checking them over winter. I didn't fly at all this past winter and all 3 of my Mini 2 packs went into hibernation after being stored in the charging hub at 60%. When I went to charge them this year they were all totally dead/hibernating/one blinky light.

That said I also have a handful of round cells from 14500s to 26800s and they all get storage charged to ~3.75v when not in use.

I never worry about it.

I have a charging bank for a bunch of batteries. I turn it on in the morning, and I turn it off at night. With decent flying weather they all get used within a few days.
