    Hi guys. I saw this video on Youtube and thought you might like to check it out. I'm not sure how accurate it is so watch the clip and make your own minds up.

    Regards Ian.

    His second tip is not accurate. That's how you check the current battery life. It does not show you if a battery cell is damaged.

    Hi. Thanks for your comments, and as I am not trained as an electrical engineer I stand corrected. Regards Ian.

    Me neither. I just study Phantoms way too much ;)

    This topic is covered in the Phantom manual. Search for "Battery life" for more details.

    This and more useful information can be found in the users manual that every operator should have downloaded & read cover to cover. ;)

    I hope that guy didn't throw that battery out as it was only 10% used. If he had read the manual he would of known that.
