    I think I just had a Fairly New Battery take a crap on me. It has about 7 Charges on it .When I install the battery in the Phantom it powers up for about 2 or 3 second then powers down.Plug the charger and it reads like it has a full charge same when I use the on button.Can not check it on the PH. Software because it will not connect.All of my other batteries power it up. Any Ideas on what it could be. Thanks Tony

    I'd agree... Sounds like something went wrong. Send it in for a replacement

    Well I solved the problem with the battery .Because it is a SMART BATTERY Maybe I had to remind it that it was charged. So i put it back on the charger and pushed the on button on .When the lights came on I held down the on button for about a minute while the on button was blinking. I don't know why I did it but it worked. Tony
