    I'm curious if anyone has any information on the P3P battery discharge rate when not in use. For example, all charged up, then not used for a couple months, then headed out to fly.

    As a rule, I don't see it as an issue because of the shorter charge time but I'm curious if anyone has any input.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your scenario is 'death' for a LiPo.

    LiPos like to be stored at 50% charge.

    However, recently DJI introduced self-discharging features into their intelligent batteries.

    Somewhere around 10 days of inactivity it will begin to discharge to near 50% in a couple of days for a fully charged batt.

    Google 'LiPo use and storage' or similar. There's tons of info on this.
