The Mavic Air batteries are one of those things that you can never have enough of. Knowing the limitations of the battery can help you plan out your shoots better and squeeze as much time out of the Mavic battery as you can. This article is where I put all of the quick questions that I receive about the Mavic Air and it's battery/power-related questions. We recommend buying the Mavic Air Fly More Combo for the extra batteries and the battery charging hub. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below and I'll answer them in the article!

The Mavic Air Intelligent Flight Battery is a rechargable 2375 mAh LiPo battery. The Mavic Air battery watt hours are 27.43 Wh and weighs 140g. It has a Voltage of 11.55 V and and max charging voltage of 13.2 V.
The Mavic Air's battery has an ideal operating temperature range of 5℃ - 40℃. If it get's any warmer, it could overheat. This is pretty uncommon and I've never had it happen to me when flying in hot Ohio temperatures in the Summer so far. If the battery is colder than 5ºC, you will have to warm the battery before taking off. This can be done by simply putting the batteries in your jacket pocket until they warm up and putting them in the drone. It's a good idea to let the drone idle after take off to let these batteries warm up further in cold weather.
Mavic Air's Battery lasts about 20-21 minutes, less depending on wind and flight speed. It usually ends up being about 18 minutes of flight time. However that is determined on the flight/weather conditions. The faster the wind and flight speed are, the less time you will get out of your Mavic Air batteries.
If the Mavic Air's battery is completely dead, it will take about 55 minutes to fully charge a battery back to 100%.
Absolutely it is. The Mavic Air tends to chew through batteries and the charging hub saves you a lot of time swapping out batteries and setting timers to switch batteries out on the charger. Again, we recommend getting the Mavic Air Fly More package, the battery charging hub is included in this package along with more batteries and accessories.
No, the Mavic Air only has one battery. Making the Mavic Air's battery larger would make the battery bigger and larger and would most likely reduce the overall flight time or not see much of an increase. We don't recommend buying non-genuine DJI batteries.
I'm a designer from Cleveland, Ohio and love to shoot photos & videos. I made my first website in 2004 to show friends photos & videos (before YouTube/Flickr were things) and have been shooting and designing ever since! I have a deep passion for making and helping others create.
