I see in RED (self discharge in storage) on my phone on the upper left side. This may sound like a stupid questin, I have several drones. But this is the first time I seen this on my phone when flying my Mavic. What the hell is this, and what dose it do or is ?

Does that message go away after fully charging the battery?

I have this also when I connect a battery to my Mavic Pro while it is in the self discharge  mode, charging it stops this and removes the on screen messge until the battery hits the 10 day point and then starts to self discharge  again.

I'll try. But I never seen this on my Zoom. Why just the Pro ?

This is nothing to worry about - its just an alert informing you that the battery in the drone hasn't been used in a while, therefore the intelligent mode programmed in the flight battery discharged it to protect the lithium battery from shortening lifespan (which can happen over long periods of time in storage).
Charge your battery back to 100%, and then put it in the drone again. If the message still occurs, contact DJI Support. I'm sure they'll be more than happy to assist you. Sorry to hear about this!

Not sure. Maybe you usually charge your batteries before flying? If you're not doing that, you should be.

You are absolutely correct.
That's how it works and I've experienced the same thing.

I know this is an old topic but I would like to know if it is okay to fly while the self discharge message displays... Someones you get to a location and just want to snap a quick pic or video but you connect the drone etc and oops, you forgot to charge it. There is still charge on the battery and you can fly... but I just want to know if I'm causing any damage or not. I know its always best to fly with 100% charged batteries.

its totally safe to fly while this message shows on screen. nothing to worry just charge it 100percent then it will be gone.
