I just destroyed my first lipo drone battery.
I think it happend becouse i stored it 3 month fully loadet.
I would always load the batteries direkt after flight soon as they are cooled handwarm.
Then lets say after some days (max. 3?) if i know that i will not fly the next day the batteries should be discharged to 50% i think
Bevore next use i have to top them all up.
If i had 12 bonkas that sounds like a lot of work, how would you do that?
And how importand is it to do that?
History of my first lipo drone battery:
I did about 50 flights with the now destroyed batterie,
Then i stored it full for about 2 month, did reload it and calibrated the drone, did wait 2 more weeks and flew first time after that long storageperiod.
Normal i got 9 minutes max. 11 minutes flight time.
That time just hovering around and much warmer than last flights the voltage warning kicked in after only 6 minutes flighttime.
The battery got puffed first time direkt after that flight.
Next day i could not close the door of the baterybox without cutting away some material.
I flew again and landet after 6 minutes to be on the save side but had some energy left but was definetly not good as it was bevore.
Direct after that flight the battery was puffed more and i had to cut again.
Then i flew a last time about 6 minutes and (maybe?) did not switch the drone off well, so it was active 6 more hours standby and drained the battery.
Then i could not start to load it 3 times, and as it startet it did never get complete full.
Puffed again more but looked good with motors running slow.
Next day i wantet to fly but seconds after start the voltage dropped to empty status.
That one did cost me 100 $ but bonkas are way more expensive…
