    Hi everyone.

    I have a total of 4 P4 batteries. Can someone please tell me how to change the amount of days for each battery's auto-discharge from 10 to 5 days. Do I have to put each battery in the P4 and change each one's amount of days in the DJI GO App ??

    You need to change the following setting in DJI GO while each battery is installed:

    Yes .. the setting is stored in the battery so you have to have the app connected to a Phantom containing the battery you want to change.

    Note if you push once the button of the battery to check charge level, it will stop auto-discharge process and reset to number of days before discharge you setup.

    And as good battery management always let the battery cool down before recharging

    Mine dont, I have checked the level many times and the discharge days (5 on mine) stays the same. Maybe they changed something in the newer ones. Mine is less than month old

    The setting will not change, but your battery will stop discharging and wait 5 more days (in your case) before it starts auto discharging again.
