Thanks, I have seen those videos and document before. Those could well be balanced batteries, I'd need a close look at the circuit board.

My concern is with the simpler batteries of the V1 / 860 / AD200.  
Right now I am charging to about 80% (not full) and not draining them completely - a sensible strategy for any Lithium battery.

In general Godox batteries fail because people leave them in the strobe and the cells drain to below the safe charge level. The battery has a safety circuit which detects this and stops them being recharged.

This is interesting, as my flashes have a hard switch which I expect cut off the power from the battery by breaking the circuit - not some soft switch which may maintain a tiny current drain.
