I see that if the battery is at 95% then you have to switch on the battery before charging ----Why is this and can someone explain the difference .
What will happen if I switch on the battery at 30% and then start the charging ?

Happy droning !!!!

As far as I know, if you start charging a battery with say 30% (anything less than 95%) on or off it will start charging to 100% with no difference.
I don´t know if there is a technical reason why you have to turn it on above 95% or if it is only a software setting (that the user cannot change).

I do have on battery, out of 3 that I have that only starts charging - regardless of how much it is charged - from 8% all the way up to 95% if I turn it on first. Other than that it performs perfectly.
The other two that I have behave as expected charging either on or off if below 95%.

I may be a newbiw to drones but I have lots of time on electric Heli's. At 95% I wouldn't even think about charging a battery.  If you charge your battery the day before you fly, they can drain to 95% just because they have a bit of vampire in them.  Unless you charge and then run out to fly, you might not see 100% on your battery.  This is not a bad thing.  I think that every time you charge you cut a little life overalll on your battery so don't charge unles you drain it some.  I also leave one battery uncharged after flight incase I want to get into the quad and change some settings. You can use a battery as low as 20% for a long time on a table top adjusting settings.  Hope this is helpful...Odan

Anyone from DJI here care to explain the reason it is stated in the user manual to switch on the battery when charging (If battery is at 95%)
