Hi, I was thinking of buying three more Tello batteries to keep as a spare for a tomorrow that my three current batteries will no longer be good. By keeping the new batteries in stock at 3.80 V / cell at room temperature for a long and long period, checking them periodically, but without using them on the drone, can they lose anything in performance? This for a tomorrow that I'm going to use them on the tello ..

I believe No, but I address the question to those who are experts on LiPo batteries.;)

The short answer is yes. LiPo batteries are somewhat finicky, in terms of storage and charging. LiPo’s like to be stored in a cool area, around 80% charged. Never let them fully discharge. If a battery ‘puffs up’ (due to overheating mainly), it best to dispose of it, and not use again, at least in a drone.

Faulty LiPos can ignite, but they normally run fine, then stop all power without notice. Ok when in a mobile phone, in a drone dangerous.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the reply! I know LiPo quite well, but I asked why I don't know the quality of Tello's batteries ...
I usually check and put Tello LiPo in storage with a coputerized charger to do all this better.;)

I want to store some batteries as spare too and came to this thread.
I might be wrong but the Tello has Lithion Ion accus not Lithium Polymer.
There is no need for a computerezid charger or balancer (like needed for LiPo).
