    Got a new lectron 2700 and charging it but its taking forever and not progressing past blinking red green to solid green.

    This typical for new batteries ?

    I just need to be more patient?

    Or

    I got a bad battery?

    More info.

    Standard DJI charger?
    How many hours has it been charging?
    All 3 cell Led's are solid red? None of them are randomly blinking?
    What amp setting are you on?

    Of course I need to ask that both battery cables are securely attached to the charger?

    It's hard to say with the DJI charger, probably noting wrong but you'd need to check the voltages on each cell to know for sure. Some of my batteries will sit in the balance phase until timeout as well, but they are balanced when checked and they perform well.

    Do yourself a favor and buy a better lipo 5A+ balance charger.

    I have a thunder ac6. It does a decent job

    +1 There's several good options that won't cost much more than a single 2700mAh batt.
