    Hi Molsal,

    It is recommended to charge the P2V Range Extender completely before each use.
    ( Page 15, P2V manual ).

    Cheers,

    Steve.

    as stated I charge it before every use
    I have gone 6 full flights with no issues on one charge
    for best results add a external usb battery back so it charges all day and no stopping the fun

    Have you added a USB external battery pack to the wifi extender? I have 10,000 mAh external pack ordered and was going to try that as my wifi extender does not last long when flying over 1 hour on extra Vision 2 batteries. Wondered if it made any significant increase in connection time to my phone (FPV) as I get signal lost due to wifi extender out of power.
