    The weather here sucks. Looks like no flying for 5 days.
    When I landed yesterday the battery was at 30%.

    Would it be better to leave at 30% until I see a flyable day coming.
    Or should I charge it.

    DJI recommends storing batteries between 30%-50% charged. If you're going to fly within the next couple of weeks, I'd keep it as-is and recharge it the day before or day of your next flight.

    I'd charge it until the 3rd light just starts to blink, then remove it and store it until needed.. Your shooting for 3.85v/cell while resting.
