Haven't used the DJI FPV in so long.. batteries 0%. I'm recharging them now. I thought it would stay at least 20% like the other batteries?

That happened to me on a Mini battery that had been setting up for about 6 months.  Luckily I was able to bring it out of hibernation after a long, slow charge.  Hopefully, you will be able to get your battery revived.

Hi, AntDX316. Thank you for reaching out and we apologize for the trouble caused. The DJI FPV battery features self-discharge protection. After being fully charged and left unused for 24 hours, it will automatically discharge to about 97% of its capacity. After it is left unused for over 5 days, it will discharge to about 60% of the capacity to protect the battery (and it may emit heat slightly during the discharge process, which is normal). If a battery has been left unused for a long period, it is possible to be over-discharged. Please keep us updated and let us know the result of the recharging. Thank you for your valued support.

I recently had one, with no lights, but it took a charge OK, and flew OK.

I have one that is now showing no lights, won't take a charge and throws a red light on the charger. It's not very old and I'm going to contact DJI about a replacement.

You should have thrown them on the charger by now. They hopefully are fine

The smart battery circuit places a small drain on the battery. If the cells go below 3.0V the battery is most likely permanently damaged.

You can not leave DJI smart batteries in storage for over 3 months. You will lose the batteries.

I have a regular schedule to recharge all my DJI batteries every 3 months. This is in accordance with the DJI recommendation on their smart batteries.

Oh I'm well aware how to store batteries. I've got over 40 DJI batteries alone in the fleet. This one was a dud, pure and simple.

My Phantom 4 and Mavic 2 batteries were just serviced after being in storage for over 6 months with no issues. None the less, your advice is spot on!
