3DR Solo - Smart Battery Calibration¶
The Solo Smart Battery may need recalibration from time to time. The following write up details how execute a recalibration of the BMS.
- Gently discharge the battery pack until it cuts off the first time (this is around 12V).
- Allow the pack the relax for at least 5 hours. The pack’s voltage will climb above 12V during this process. DO NOT TRY TO DISCHARGE THE PACK AGAIN. Damage to the battery may result.
- Charge the pack completely and leave it on the charger for 48 hours. The pack will relax, then do a balance cycle, then top off.
- Let the pack sit for at least 2 hours off the charger before using the pack.
