Hello, is there a way to drain the batteries without damaging them?
I have four batteries and two, not having used them, remained at 100%. After a week the batteryes remained at 95%.
There is a gentle way to download them safely. How do you do it?
Thank you and greetings

Thanks for the reply. I am referring to the user manual. "Auto-Discharge Function: To prevent swelling, the battery will automatically discharge to approximately 96% of its charge level when inactive for one day, and to approximately 60% when inactive for five days."
But after a week the battery is still over 96%.
Is there a problem in the self-discharge circuit?

It doesn't sound like they are auto-discharging properly.  Give it a few more days and see if they discharge to 60% at the ten day mark.

Thanks for the reply. I'll do as you suggested.
I will update you in another five days.

Hi there. Thank you for reaching out. To prevent swelling, the battery automatically discharges to approximately 96% of the battery level when it is idle for one day, and approximately 60% when idle for five days. It is normal to feel moderate heat from the battery, while it is discharging. You may refer to page 30 of the DJI Avata manual and also I will post a link wherein you can access the Safety Guidelines for the DJI Avata. Thank you for your valued support.

Thanks for the reply. As I wrote before, it is precisely by referring to the user manual that the timing does not coincide.
A week has passed since the last charge but the percentage is still above 96. What could have gone wrong with the self-discharge system?

Thank you

If you check the battery charge using the button on the back you're telling the battery that you intend to use it soon and it will reset the timer.

At least this is how it was for the Mavic series and I assume it stayed the same on our Avatas

Please let us know the battery percentage after the 5 days test, OnePixel for us to check. Thank you.

Ah. Very interesting. Thanks for the reply. So the batteries should be ignored for at least five days. Wish they had written it in the user manual.

I left my batteries idle and off the charger for a full week.
Still they remain charged close to 100%.

Please review the firmware to see if the auto-discharge is working correctly.
I hate to see my batteries get damaged by improper discharging.

I agree.
The self-discharge didn't work for me either. They asked me to do a further five-day test.

Good morning. This morning I checked the SOC of the batteries and the percentage is 59 for all three. Well I would say.

Thank you for keeping us posted. It seems that all of your batteries discharge well as it shows here that the battery must discharge for approximately 60% in 5  days. Should you have other inquiries, please don't hesitate to reach us. Thank you

as they are liion, it does not matter

The produce page is incorrect. The batteries labels themselves reveal that they are LIPO - hence the circuity and logic to discharge automatically to 60% as is best for LIPO.

FYI:  If you ever needed to travel (airline travel) with them and needed a quick discharge.  You could certainly power up the Avata and just hoover long enough to drain the battery.  For safety it's often required by airlines that the batteries are not fully charged during the flight.

Battery Firmware Updates (Page 83 User Manual)
Also, just a reminder for those with MULTIPLE Avata batteries.  If you do a firmware update on the aircraft itself that EACH BATTERY will also require the update.  Just insert each battery into the Avata and power on the aircraft.  A prompt will appear in the goggles to update the battery.  Better to do this before flights so you don't have to do it in the field.

Then what about my batteries? They don't discharge as intended.
