battery care

[ New ]

Hi

 

When not using your GP for long periods of time, what is the best way to look after the batteries?

Should they be fully charged or discharged?

And better in or out the camera etc?

 

Thanks

Batteries are best stored out of the camera with a 50-75% charge (never completely full or depleted). Placing them in a sealed bag with a Desiccant Packet (silica gel, like you find in a new pair of shoes) and storing in a cool (not cold) dry place is best.

Two pieces of great advice there.  I fully recommend the use of a lipo bag for batteries.  Whether it be a GoPro battery, a drone battery or a high intensity flashlight battery, always store those batteries in a protective flame proof container when not in use.
