Use a LIPO guard bag to store the batteries. The purpose of the bag is to reduce the damages in case of lipo fire.

DJI recommends to discharge the batteries to 40% - 65% when storing them for more than 10 days. You can check battery level by pressing the power button once. At 40% battery level, the LED1 and LED2 indicators should be on. At 65% the LED1, LED2, and LED3 should be on. Somewhere between this two indications should be fine for storage.

5. Check Using Software

Connect a tablet or phone to your remote control. In the top right corner of the main screen you will the battery level. Check that this number is something between 40% and 65%. Also, in the battery settings you can check the current power, the maximum capacity available, and the number of cycles.
