How do I handle the smart battery of ANAFI Ai?

ANAFI Ai’s smart LiPo battery is preinstalled on the drone. It can be charged whether it is installed on ANAFI Ai, or not.


Battery removal

To remove the smart battery from the drone, unfold the arms of ANAFI Ai and press the push-button located under the battery and disengage it from the drone.


Battery installation

To install the smart battery back on the drone, unfold the arms of ANAFI Ai, slide the battery firmly into the drone until the you feel and hear the battery clicking into the body of the drone. Check that the battery is tightly secured into the drone. You are set!

This battery features a wintering mode, designed to increase its durability and facilitate its care. Ideally, when not in use for a prolonged period, batteries should be stored half-charged. When not in use for 10 days, ANAFI Ai’s smart battery discharges itself, if required, to 65% charge, over a 48h period. In other words, after a maximum of 12 days without use, this smart battery enters hibernation with a charge level which never exceeds 65%. If you leave your ANAFI Ai battery for 12 days, you will find out its power button does not activate the charge level LED indicators.


The battery needs to be charged to exit the wintering mode and start operating as described in the earlier paragraphs: this behavior preserves the battery over time. Parrot recommends you always run a full charge of your smart battery before flying ANAFI Ai.
