Hello,

Is it possible the Remote battery of the Mavic Air auto discharges?


This week I charged the battery to 100% and checked it afterwards (100% sure).
It was in my bag 3 days and yesterday I wanted to fly and the battery was completely dead (0%).

Luckily I had the charger with me but I had to wait an extra hour to do some flying...

Not unless you accidentally left it on when you put it in the bag. My RC will stay charged for weeks with minimal battery drain. Might want to charge it, set it out on a table and check it every day. Might have a bad RC battery.

Hi, sorry for the inconvenience, like Paul mentioned you might leave the RC on while it was in your bag. I would recommend fully charge the RC and check the performance of it.

Okay, that's a possible reason for the situation
I'll do the battery test this week, just to make sure.

About discharging batteries, do you sometimes have to discharge the Mavic Air's batteries to keep them in a good health? If so, how to do this? Just put them in the drone, turn it on and wait until they're at 0%?

The batteries will auto discharge down to the storage level on their own. To extend the life of the batteries, don't charge them unless you're going to use them or if they need to be recharged back up to the storage level. You can find more details about caring for your batteries here.
