How many days should I set for battery discharge?
If you have to ask, then it's probably best to leave it on default.
Welcome to the site!
There is no right or wrong answer.
Depends on your habits, but the shorter you set it, the better for the battery. Leaving them fully charged over time is not good for them. Of course, if it discharges when you actually wanted to fly, its pretty annoying. If you dont charge them unless you plan to fly, it doesnt matter what you set it at.
FWIW, Ive seen tests where a fully charged lipo battery would lose around 25-30% of its capacity per year. This gets worse if ambient temperature is high, less if its cold. So a few days isnt a big deal, unless you always do it, charge them and then not use them.
The default is 10 days, but DJI recommends not keeping them fully charged for more than 7 days in the battery safety guidelines. I set mine to 2 days since I normally only fly on the weekends.
I have mine set at 3 days. Thanks for your response
