I've just fully charged my spark batteries and went straight out to fly them, I have 4 batteries the first battery said it was charged 97% and the second battery was charged to 98% why won't my charging dock charge them to 100% are both batteries done knackered and should be binned. Each battery has about 100 charge's on them, and I have tried to look after my batteries I don't go below 30% I have my alarm set for 25%. What would you spark owners do??

Lipos don’t have an infinite life. They don’t like the cold, or excessive heat, or over discharge either. That being said, I have 5 year old lipos in several of my planes, and I still get the same flying time, and just a little warmer, and slightly more discharged than before.

What’s your flying time like?

What’s the outside air temperature?

Mine brand new last month are only going 10-11 minutes tops. 0-5 degrees C. I’m sure I’ll get longer flying times when the weather warms up.

Yeah I'm in the UK last night it was about-4 so 10 to 11 minutes isn't that bad really. Pretty chuffed with that then.
