I just ordered 3 original tello batteries to keep in spare. which of you has spare batteries and how do you store them for long periods? I thought about keeping them at 3.85 volts and checking this voltage after 2/3 months. maybe better every now and then (months) to take them to 100% to fly.

Never gave it much thought actually. I just top all of mine up a couple hours prior to flying. Usr the 3 battery charger on a USB cable.

Not that they last a long time. About, maybe 1/3rd the time my EVO lasts.

I put my batteries into 3.85 volt storage mode like this.
I do automatic storage with three batteries at the same time,checking their voltage periodically. i think it is the best way to store extra batteries.

Considering how inexpensive they are (say compared to my EVO batteries), cost is inconsequential.

tello batteries, if purchased at certain sites, are at a good price.

Hello Mate.
I also have spare batteries. And I program the drone in the notification of battery level to 50% and they are stored in a dry place and with average temperature. preferably have a special bag for batteries to prevent accidents. Check the batteries every 2/3 months and charge them to 100% and return them to 50% to save them again. all this in case the drone is not used for a long period. good luck. Regards.

thanks for the answer, i'm already doing all this with the current batteries ... storage at 3.85 volts and placed in a safe lipo container. I will do the same with the new batteries, but with 100% charge and I fly every certain amount of time.
