    Yes it does. Thanks.
    But its pretty strange. The flight was more then an hour ago.
    I think putting it back in the backpack when its hot is not the correct thing to do right?

    If the packpack has a lot of padding, this is likely to act as an insulator and not let the heat from the battery disperse.

    Especially if its foam padding rather than sponge. Maybe get into a routine of when you get home you unpack the battery first and leave on the side/shelf, then put the kettle on or power up the computer (to check the awesome drone footage you just took) and by that time 15mins has passed and you should be cool enough to charge the battery.

    Thanks my friend.
    Yes, i have a hardshell backpack which is foam padding. I usually carry batteries in hand after flying, i didn't do it today. So that's what happened.

    Thanks for help!
    I hope this topic helps someone else also :)
