Can anyone who has the DJI mini3 confirm that they only get 24 minutes battery time instead of the 34 minutes stated. A lot of people on YouTube are saying they only get 24 minutes. I find it hard to believe they could be 10 minutes short.

And what about the bigger battery that is supposed to give you 47 minutes. Does that mean you only get 37 minutes?

And finally, could some of you experts think of something you could remove or temporarily remove on the Mini3 that could help it make the 250 gram weight cutoff with the larger battery because I don't think the larger battery puts it over the weight limit by that much.

I don't have that drone but I've never gotten what DJI claimed for any drone or any battery (now on my 3rd a Mavic 3).

My latest Mavic 3 usually wants to land around the 30-35 min mark and not the 45 mins or so claimed by DJI.

In any case your lithium batteries will live longer if you don't seriously drain them on every flight. Why push it?

There's some guy in Hawaii who does range tests and I've seen him go below 0% in some of his YT videos ... not a good thing for your batteries longevity however. Something I certainly wouldn't be testing any time soon with my own drones.

It's my understanding that lithium cells can be seriously damaged by deep discharging.
