    I currently own an MJX Bugs 2W. Totally love it, hate the sub-par battery life. The manufacturer states its should last around 20min, but I only get around 7 :(

    Fully appreciate that weather/wind conditions play a factor, but really did expect a bit longer.
    Has anyone else experienced this?

    No way you will get 20 minutes, but you should be getting a lot more than 7. Is this with multiple batteries, or do you only have 1?

    Meter the battery right off the charger to make sure it's fully charged, should be around ~8.4V.

    I have two. I am charging them via the supplied charger.

    My first question would be whether the charger is putting a full charge into those batteries.

    Get yourself a cheap multimeter ($10 is fine) and test them. Anyone in this hobby should have one.
