Hi all,

I can't imagine many users approaching the end of the cycle count for a Mavic Mini Battery as it is still a fairly new drone but I am wondering what the life expectancy is for the batteries.  I remember for the P3S hearing anywhere from 200-500 cycles is normal all depending on how well you take care of the battery.

Thanks,

- Blake

If you don't expose your battery to high temps (especially when fully charged) or store it discharged or fully charged and keep it in a cool dry dark area you will see more than 400 cycles unless you are unlucky and have one cell with a manufacturing fault that can fail at any time but is more likely very early or very late in its life. The battery will of course gradually loose capacity as it becomes older, no one can avoid that.

I heard with newest firmware battery firmware was updated to max. 200cycles. After this battery is unusable. Because people buy and replace cells, and DJI is not making money on it.  I'd like someone reputable to confirm or deny this.

Also for the battery use. If you want the battery to have more cycles, try not to discharge it a lot. Best would be if you land at 20-30percent. You can go of lower course , it will not kill the battery, but number of recharging cycles will be reduced. The lower you go the higher impact for battery longevity.

Is buying multiple replacement batteries recommended?

Probably about 4 years. Even longer if you take good care of it. To further lengthen the life, you should do something called a deep cycle every month. To deep cycle, fully charge the drone and then fly it to critically low battery. When it gets to you, resist the landing procedure until the battery gets to 5%. Then let it land and shutoff. Immediately shut it off. Wait 30 minutes for the battery to cool down. Then fully charge it. This will reset all the cells and extend its life.
