    Using android 4s DJI app 1.050 I have run the battery to 1% then fully charged it and when I insert the fully charged battery and power up the DJI app show that the battery life is only 95% any suggestions. I have 4 batteries and all say the same thing when fully charged. Any help would be gratefully accepted. Thank you

    1%? If you really went down that low there's a good chance you've damaged the battery - double check it's not swollen, and if it is out it somewhere that isn't flammable.

    If that was a typo - phew! Rather than use the app, I'd plug the aircraft into the Phantom Assistant and have a look at what that says. It will show you what the current max capacity is against design capacity - as lipos get used their max capacity does reduce.

    In the manual DJI recommends running the battery down to 8% every 20 or so charging cycles to help calibrate the % readout.
