    What happens when you press the button on the battery? Have you tried a different battery?

    Are you able to turn on the battery when it's not in your Phantom?

    Looks good. How about when you double press and hold?

    It sounds like you're checking the battery life. I'd like you to try turning on the battery -- like this:

    I thought you were confirming that it does not power on when the battery is in the drone. That's why I was asking if the battery powered on when outside of the drone. It should.

    If you're sure you're powering on the battery properly, then I'm going to conclude it must be damaged. You should replace it.

    Can you post a video? It's hard to understand what you're showing in the above photos.

    It sounds from his description that the battery is powering on, and the lowest (<25%) LED is lit
