Hi,
Do anyone know about the number of charge/discharge cycles the Spark battery last before losing too much of its capacity.

Cheers,
S.

DJI suggested 200 charges but i've heard on here it could be much higher.  Mine are not anywhere near the 200 charges as i have 3 batteries i use on rotation.

It is the original one, since I didn't buy the combo, and when reached 250th I put it in a drawer and will check in a month with a full recharge what will happen. Anyway money spent in juices like batteries are well spent I own 7 now.

I thought that the battery auto discharges to protect itself. If I don't use mine for more then two weeks the y already started discharging. I think it's somewhere stated in the manual as well.

once you are connected to your spark, launch the DJI Go 4 app.  Open the settings window by clicking top right and click on battery icon.  there you will see Details; within details it will show the number of charge cycles.

putting away a fully charged battery will cause it to automatically discharge.  this is done to protect the battery and eventually it will go into hibernation; don't remember the timeline/% level
