Everytime I charge batteries, I monitor the process. Has anyone had a battery turn itself on after a full complete charge? I know that when charging, the batteries LEDs will flicker. After disconnecting the battery, it was still on. I have uploaded an screen grab.
Thoughts anyone?

I believe there is one report before. Once it's fully charged, all LEDs should be off even charger is still plugged in.

Laceyboy is correct. It should turn off. Try using it and try charging it again. If it happened again send it back. Battery has 6 month warranty.

It happened to me on one of my 2 new batteries. I'll keep an eye open on that I guess.

When using the battery, DJI GO app will let you know if there's update available.
The aircraft update contains the battery update.
Please check your current firmware version.
Or you could try to refresh the latest firmware version via DJI Assistant.

What I do to see if the App is checking for updates is once I connect the drone to the controller, if I click the Connect to equipment page I can see checking for update. Is there a way to see if a battery has the correct firmware. Before I had one of the batteries update itself 3 times and all 3 were successful as the App Prompt me.

I updated my Mavics batteries one by one on my Mavic in DJI Assistant. That was easy and fast.

I did not know of that, what tab do you look under? When you open Assistant it only gives you Mavic Pro, how do you select Battery Update???? Thanks for the heads up

I had this happen on a partially used battery after removing the battery from the Mavic following a flight. I re-inserted the battery into the mavic, which powered up without my intervention, I then turned the battery off while still inserted in the Mavic and it shut off as it should.

The firmware is stored on the craft you do not update the batteries via Assistant 2

Update your craft to the latest fw then turn it on with each battery in, the Go app will prompt you to update of the battery needs to be updated.
