    I have a P3 Professional and have charged the batteries maybe 15 times. Today when I plugged one in it didn't light up at all. The other one still turns on when plugged in and does the green light flashing showing how much has charged.

    Anyone else having this issue with a battery?

    What happens when you press the battery button once? When is the last time you used the battery?

    Its probably already charged too much to begin charging again normally. If you want to top it off, turn it on (outside of the Phantom) and then plug it in.

    Or I've tried charging many things on a light switch controlled outlet :) (Stupid but never know)

    Watch this video. Much explained here. If my battery has been charged and not used for a few days. I turn it on, and then plug it onto the charger. It then starts charging and tops it off. I always use my battery topped off and fully charged.
