I set the Battery setting to 3 days, but even though I have not used my P4 for 2 weeks, they are still fully charged 4 bars.

I thought that after the 3 day limit, they should start dicharging. Do I have to do anything else for them to automatically discharge?

The timer resets every time you hit the button.

I wouldn't trust them to still be full, even if you have been resetting the timer by pressing the button every few days - see how long it takes to charge them back to full?

For safety, always give the batteries a full charge before using them.

Were you checking the batteries by pressing the power button within the first 3 days or so?

I did not press the button for about 7 days.

Upon plugging them in the P4 today, they both showed 97% charge.  So I discharged them a little bit by leaving them in the P4 for a few minutes. I also changed the discharge time to 1 day for both of them.  I will check again in a few days...I am not going to be flying any time soon, as we are having a Polar Vortex forming!

Just to clarify, were they at 97% when you initially left them, or was it closer to 100%? If everything is up to date and you are running the latest app, the discharge function should work. Please let me know if it still does not discharge on its own.

They were 100% charged about 2 weeks ago.  I thought that they would have drained more during that period.  I set both to start discharging after 1 day now, and I will check them again in a few days.

Just to clarify, is the Go app you have for iOS or Android? Do you happen to have another mobile device to test the battery settings on the newer version of the app?

The batteries seem to be discharging now after I set the limit to one day.
