    You can hit the report button. I already did it for ya.

    My batteries are great but I only have 21 cycles on mine (got four).

    Was this battery the one you were flying when you crashed recently (cell1 may have sustained mechanucal damage). The life % and depicted voltage deviations indicate this pack is teady for retirement. Your only option is to attempt a discharge to 8% and full charge, i susoect that wont acheive a lot but worth a go. There are more radical options available but you need access to the pack terminals and an intelligent lipo charger.

    No not me LOL I've never crashed. But I have done the discharge to try and balance it out a couple of times but didn't help, my others have over a 100 cycles and seem to be fine but you can tell a performance difference from these old to the newer ones I have. Do not get near the limited propulsion warnings either!

    Over 100 cycles... that's pretty good. What is the so-called useful life percentage on those? Just curious

    Last I looked the others said 95 to 97 % life left. I haven't heard a lot about the battery life on these but did read here and there it's around 300 cycles.

    Sorry Mate i got you mixed up with another member who posted about repairing a crashed bird recently.

    300 cycles is probably calculated (expected based on theoretical calcuations) or determined in laboratory conditions. Limit depthnif discharge to 30% and apply maximum load of 1C current draw that would be easily acheivable. Most still get giod battery life from current phones after a year and they are charged daily.

    Yeah and I kind of feel like the count is not 100% accurate, I believe I have quite a bit more cycles on it than what it says.
