    Hi all,

    today I wanted to recharge my P2 smart battery.
    After a flight to 30% a couple weeks ago, i just stored it..

    Right now, i have trouble charging it - the charger will not switch to "red".
    Pressing the button on the battery shows a full battery..
    If i switch on the battery and plug in the charger, it will start charging (but the leds will not move in sequence, all will just stay turned on) - but after 10min the charger turns to green.

    I suspect that my battery is defective - i charged a week ago another battery without any problems.

    Connecting the Battery with the Phantom and the Software, it shows "low voltage".
    Having a look on the voltages around 3,7V (for LiPo storage a quite good value in my experience), i wonder why the Capacity is 0mAH :) !

    Attached you can find a screenshot of this highlight of my day today..

    would be great to receive your hints on that :)!

    Does appear that the smart battery has gone dumb. Try putting it in the quad and seeing if it will start up. If so run it down to 8% then try charging. If the battery is not to old you may try for a warranty replacment.

    The P2 will power up and start, but with blinking red lights led - just for 10sec the motors will turn, then it will switch off again ...
    I will get in contact with DJI then.. :-(...

    If anybody has another idea, please let me know!
