In preparation for a 'battery calibration', I took a screen capture of the Android DJI GO Aircraft Battery page just before takeoff, when the battery was 100% charged, and again after landing after being flown until Critically Low Battery (10%).

What I see is the Times Charged is one more after the flight when I returned from the airpark than at the end of the flight.

The second battey shows a Times Charged bumped by 2.

What's gong on here?

UPDATE: Re-installed first battery. Times Charged is same as seen after I returned from airpark. Motors were not started both times away from the airpark. In fact, they would not start via CSC (battery too low).

It would be helpful to show the battery serial number on the Aircraft battery page for those of us using more than one battery. A screen capture would then show to which battery the measurements apply.

Battery 1 now 100% charged after a deep discharge (2%) - Times Charged DID NOT CHANGE! There seems to be a delay in the Times Charged value.

The Total Capacity is 10 more mAh and the Battery Life remains 90%.

The battery cycles will show another charge when you deplete the battery down to under 50% or more then charge it back up.
Also, in the battery tab "Advanced" is the serial number.

I captured the counter when the battery was depleted (below 50%) immediately after a flight and again before connecting the charger. There was no charge between those two captures.

Try taking it down lower to 10-20% then see what it does.

I see, seems it skipped one but it's good now as it reads two charges fight?

I have not been keeping a log of charges so I have nothing else with which to compare.

Write the number of times charged on the battery and then make a small mark for each charge and in a few months see if they are the same.

Recharging lipo battery packs and the replacement of lost electrolyte, a natural process in wet-cell batteries, staves off permanent sulfation. When a battery is allowed to remain in a state of sulfation, either from lack of use or from lack of recharge, it tends to lose both capacity and life.
