    Hello I am new to the forum And have a couple of questions..

    I have a phantom2v+ and I only have one battery..

    The battery had been discharged and I charged it with a normal lipo charger ( pb 5.0A 12v)

    And it charged fine and stopped charging after 1-1,5 hours

    The problem that I am having is that I can not turn on the battery.. 1 push says it's full and 2nd push 2-3 seconds green light start lighting but as soon as I let go all LED go off except for the red LED that stays on for a few minutes..

    Any help would be much appreciated as I do not know what the led is trying to say??

    May I have Overcharged?? If I have overcharged how can I force a discharge??

    Was it stored for a long period and how flat was it stored for ? Looks like it may be a failed battery, why aren't young using the Dji charger to charge it with. Are you sure your turning it on correctly ?

    Could this be due to hibernation mode ??

    When I try to charge I get a couple of blinks as if it was charging then turns off ??

    Any advice??

    1. don't fly that battery
    2. get a new original one
