    I forgot to turn off. I overcharged my battery for 8hrs, is that alright? Will it affect the battery lifespan?

    It's not possible to overcharge your batteries if you're using a DJI battery charger. The battery will automatically stop charging when it's full.

    Dont be a "read the manual" d*cknazi. 90% of the questions here are answered in a manual somewhere.

    While the battery/charger is designed to prevent over-charging we have seen that there can be problems with DJI equipment.

    While the risk may be low one should develop a habit of not charging any LiPo unattended. This is when the majority of reported accidents (fire) occur with LiPos in general.
