    Here we go with the same Chinese made crap that breaks for no reason. I flew yesterday. Battery drained to 13%, now the charging lights are not coming on both chargers.

    Yeah I admit I was fast to bash, but it's strange that the lights would take that long to flash.

    The led diodes, only show relative battery voltage. Not exact like when you open the battery diagnostics in the Go app.
    If no lights came on, while the initial charging progressed, then it would seem, that you were obviously at a very low voltage. And too low for the first light to register an actual estimate.
