With an SP140 on preorder, I figured now is a good time to learn a bit about lithium ion batteries. I’ve seen a lot of different info, some contradictory. I’m wondering what are best practices for long battery life and good performance.
- Store at low charge
- Store it cool (below 25C/77F avg lifetime temperature)
- Charge slowly
- Don’t go too low or too high with the charge (4.1v max?)
So would it be best to leave a unit uncharged until the day before flight? Then slow charge (will SP140 charger support that?)
Any other tips for long battery lifetime?
