My Anafi initiated auto landing while there’s still power left..

As the title stated, two of my batteries did this to me without any warning.
My first flight today almost scared me to death, because it showed “lower battery power” then almost the same time it initiated auto landing, controller was blinking purple light—and I was flying above the darn lake!
I kind of semi-crush-landing just 1 meter away from the water on the shore, in someone’s backyard.
My Anafi crushed into fence, got a chip on one of front right props.
The power level was 70%.

Then I switch to another battery, this time I just flew on land, less than one minute it did the same thing and landed on the grass.
The power level was 60%.

I know it’s time to switch new batteries, but are there ways to hard reset the batteries at meantime? Is both auto-landing with sufficient power caused by the batteries?

Sounds like one cell is weaker then the other and when under load it fails to the point the Anafi does the auto landing for low battery. Once you land the battery kind of recovers showing the higher voltage.
If using the moded App on the forum you can monitor the voltage instead of percentage.

Thank you for replying. I guess I’ll just buy new batteries when situation is allowed😔.
Because most of my flights are above water, I can’t risk it suddenly decide to became a submarine drone😨..
