    Hello all,

    Relatively new to the scene but I've been viewing a lot of very helpful information here. I was playing around with the Phantom Assistant software and noticed the following information for my 3 batteries. (I'd add screen shots of the battery tab but can't figure out how to insert them)

    Here is the info:
    Battery #1
    Voltage 12.469mV
    Design Capacity 5200 mAh
    Full Capacity 5200 mAh
    Current Capacity 5026 mAh
    Percentage of Charge 96%
    Percentage of Life 99%
    Discharge Times: 5 times
    Temperature 27.8
    Cell 1 Volt: 4157mV
    Cell 2 Volt: 4157mV
    Cell 3 Volt: 4155mV

    Battery #2
    Voltage 11134mV
    Design Capacity 5200 mAh
    Full Capacity 5153 mAh
    Current Capacity 655 mAh
    Percentage of Charge 12%
    Percentage of Life 97%
    Discharge Times: 10 times
    Temperature 26.3
    Cell 1 Volt: 3712mV
    Cell 2 Volt: 3710mV
    Cell 3 Volt: 3712mV

    Battery #3
    Voltage 11368mV
    Design Capacity 5200 mAh
    Full Capacity 5200 mAh
    Current Capacity 1575 mAh
    Percentage of Charge 30%
    Percentage of Life 98%
    Discharge Times: 8 times
    Temperature 27.4
    Cell 1 Volt: 3789mV
    Cell 2 Volt: 3790mV
    Cell 3 Volt: 3789mV

    I'm curious to know if I have anything to worry about with the first battery. All cells are similar voltages, but they seem to be higher than the other two, which seem to be very similar. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
    Cheers,
    Chris

    Looks fine. Batt #1 is charged, the others are not.

    Thanks.

    I realized the charge differences, i was just alarmed that the cell voltages were similar for a 13% and 30% and then significantly different for the fully charged one. Admittedly I'm a little paranoid after reading all the issues with battery's and having a co-worker lose a phantom this past week-end for no apparent reason.

    Cheers
