I have three hi-cap batteries for the P4P and have them set to discharge in 5 days. This worked fine until recently. The only change I made was to update the no fly zone database about five weeks ago. It sounds silly to me but it seems that since then the batteries have stopped discharging automatically.

I double checked the settings of all three batteries and they're still set to 5 days. I changed to 6 and back to 5, still doesn't seem to help.
After noticing they didn't seem to be discharging, I let one sit unused for 7 days after a full charge. I put it in the drone and checked the status. It was at 94% and self-discharging. But now, 3 days after that I check the status and it's still at 94% but "normal".

Did I reset the timer by putting the battery in the drone and turning it on? Does just pushing the button on the battery to check the level reset the timer (which I do quite often)? It seems that both are.

I've attached a screen shot of the About screen. I get no messages about any firmware updates needed. Does anyone know what's going on?

Pushing the button to check resets the timer from what I have read.  I might be wrong but I read it somewhere.

I'm beginning to believe that. Although it doesn't make much sense.

The timer will be reset if you press the power button during this period. Leave it for a certain time and check later.

Your batteries can take upto 6 days to self discharge from what ive seen people write in other threads so you need to be patient.
5 days to start discharging plus 6 days to discharge equals 11 days you should leave them alone for.

Each time you turn the battery on or even check its level of charge the timer is reset, so you begin from day 1 again. In addition, as Hellsgate points out it takes a time for the discharge to occur. Same with a broken leg, take the plaster off to soon and you can start all over again. Be patient and not a Patient.
