    Hi everyone;

    Is it ok to just top up the batteries after flying for a short while? I've come in form flying with maybe five minutes flight time on a full battery and just topped it off because I'd be going back out again in the morning or the next day after that. Does that harm the batteries at all or am I ok doing this?

    If someone has the proper charging protocol I appreciate knowing what the proper method is. Thank you.

    You won't hurt the batteries by topping them off.

    The most important thing to remember is to fully charge them before flying. And, never store them below 30% charged. You can find more information in the Phantom Battery Safety Guidelines.
