    Just bougth my Phantom. My second time ever I wanted to charge the battery it didn't take any charge. I think many the charger broke, even if I didn't do any shortcuts. Same problem anyone? Is the charger that weak och could it be the battery?

    What lights do you get on the charger when you connect the battery?

    The only light is the green blinking. None of the red one.

    What about if you don't connect the balance connector? (Little white 4-pin connector.)

    Did you check to make sure you don't have a broken, bent or missing pin in the balance port?

    It sounds like the charger is bad. Can't get to the charger manual off the DJI website from here. Does it say anything about a blinking green light?

    PWright -thank you for your respond and sorry for my delay. I talk to the seller and we measured the output socket red/black and it only gave about 2.3v DC. The battery is 11.1v DC so we've found out that the charger is broken and they will send me a new :D

    Good to hear that you got it solved. Hopefully you'll get the new one and be back in the air soon!
