Battery

  1. How do I know a battery is no longer useable? I have one that is a little puffy but still reads okay .
     
  2. Roosty had one continually get weak. Short flight times.

    I have 3. 2 of them fully charged are only good for 18 minutes. Both are swelled. One so bad I can barely get it in/out of the Drone. I plan to send Autel an email with pics of the batteries and of the battery info screen showing their weakness.

    Roosty got a new battery under warranty. I expect the same service on both of mine.
     
  3. You can get a few details on your battery strength by going to this screen in the star link app. This is a screen shot of what mine was reading when it was failing. Short flight time. Autel battery.jpg
     
  4. Very similar to both of mine.
     
  5. I have one like that also. Mine goes about 12 minutes and gets down to 20%, and then in about 30 seconds from that, goes to 7 or 8% critical and lands. I only fly it close to me. I'm also wondering when the swelling is too much, I guess when it doesn't fit in the drone anymore.
    Now this battery was a dead one that the charger wouldn't recognise and I was able to bring it back to life. I'm now looking for some dead batteries to experiment with. I want to disect an original battery to see what its made up of so I can try to find, or assemble, a replacement. I'm hoping it's made up of available cells that can be replaced.

  7. Possibly your charger is not balancing your cells evenly, do you have another charger you can try?
     
  8. Autel sent me a refurbished charger to try and I had the same results. Autel is going to replace all 4 of the batteries because they all had the same problem. I have sent for a new charger just to see if the refurbished one was bad or the batteries were to far gone. I am amazed they are going to do this. I am not sure my problem is solved but I will have some new batteries. to fly with.
     
  9. That is very strange. Autel is awesome for taking care of you, this is why i have 2 Autel premiums, their customer service is 2nd to none, good luck & fly high!!!
