I bought an anafi a few days ago and noticed that my flight times are really bad, so I did a hover test and that gave me only 16 minutes, normal flight time flying around is like 8-12 minutes.
Is there something wrong with my battery?

Hi,do you have 2.5A charger or any charger 2A and up.....hook up charging cable to battery,wait 10 seconds and than press and hold power for 15 seconds,release button,you will see red light for a second...now that battery reset is done charge battery and later do a hover test,you should get 20+ minutes...if you again get 16 minutes,you have bad battery

Drone battery has been charged with these chargers, i lost some charge over the night so I topped it up with the power bank, I'm gonna do a hover test inside without any wind now. Will post results when I'm done.

Okay, I got 18m 21s flight time with 10% battery left. I was hovering inside. Oh and I did the battery reset yesterday.

Something is wrong with your battery,here is few pictures,combination of flying(13 minutes) and hovering(10 minutes),I got 22minutes and 51 seconds where you are getting only 18 minutes when hovering ,it should be much more(I landed when there was only 3% but it doesn’t matter in this case)
Check the battery consumption in the graph(white line) and compare it your graph
