One of my favorite accessories for the Phantom 4 Professional is the charging hub which has a storage mode that is used to keep batteries fresh by discharging them to around 50%. Sadly the charging hub for the Mavic Air does not have this feature.
Since I always turn up to a job with more batteries (and drones) than I actually need, this usually means I am left with batteries that need to be discharged to avoid the long-term damage caused by leaving them fully charged.
[Note: I am aware that they are smart batteries and will auto discharge. But I don’t like how long that takes to kick in and it is not something that can be adjusted on the Air.]
So, what to do?
Flying is the most obvious, but that takes time.
And then…it hit me!
The flymore combo comes with a thing called a USB Power Bank Adapter. This magical little block turns your batteries into a charging hub for any USB powered device. Since I always have other equipment (iPads, Phones, Cameras etc.) that need charging I can now kill two birds with one stone.
Since I figured this out, I have not had to leave my batteries charged for more than a day or so, and that makes me feel a lot better!
