    I've got about 14 flights in on my P3, 7 on each battery. I noticed yesterday that it says that one of the battery's has only been charged 3 times.

    Has anyone else seen this behavior? Am I doing something wrong?

    Apparently there is a threshold that must be crossed to add to the tally.

    Its pretty straight forward... If you drain your battery to say 30% and charge it back up to 100%, that counts as 70% of a charge not a full charge, then for example the next time you drain it to 30% you have completed one full charge and 40% of a second charge (70% + 70% = 140% = 1 full charge and 40% of a second...

    Its the number of complete cycles of the battery not the number of times you've plugged it in. IIRC

    Oh so breaking stage they don't always register. That makes sense. Thx.
