    Well I took advice of a couple of forum members and waited til today to update to FW 3.4, but I notice there was no upgrade for the smart battery. I tried the previous firmware but that didn't allow me to do either...

    Where is the battery upgrade?
    Where is the feature to discharge battery?

    It's on the upgrade page in Assistant

    DJI's greatest mystery - no-one knows

    It's not... Battery listed at 2.0 and nothing written(link to upgrade) is blank where before it would say, "No Update"

    Mystery indeed :?:

    If you have the early version of Assistant 3.4 it's not there.
    Go back to 3.2 or download the new (2nd) version of 3.4 and try that.

    It has been removed due to causing problems with aftermarket limefuel batteries

    What has been removed; 3.4, the update to 3.4 or the update to the update to 3.4?

    It would be interesting to know how that is supposed to work, is the battery constantly operating and counting time, and then would start discharging(how? with LED lights?) after 10 days by it self, in the box?!

    Are you able to change the low battery percentage with this new update?

    I'm having same problem. Downloaded both 3.2 and 3.4 last night. Tried on 2 different P2V's. No option to update batteries. Tried 4 different batteries. Just says version 2.00 next to battery line.

    Would that discharge the battery to around 50% which is recommended for long term storage of LiPo batteries? That is at least what I expected from an auto-discharging feature

    Also note that this self discharge feature is only supported with the latest and greatest batteries ( or so DJI says )

    Wow, how confusing! Are you talking about firmware or Assistant software?

    Correct, but Geert was referencing 3.06, which is a (now) older version of firmware, isn't it?

    Cool, the battery firmware update works just fine in this version!

    When one battery is done just power down, stick in another battery, power up then run the update again until they're all up to date :D

    So I understand this as I am terribly confused, there is not a special place on assistant to update the batteries. If I understand this correctly every battery you have you need to plug in the machine and run assistant software. it will then tell you what ver you have and suggest the update? I only have the one and it says ver 2.6, so I guess I am done?
