    Hi all,

    Does the battery charger with the new Phantom 2 NV change back to green when the battery is ready?

    Or, if you see the four flashing green lights on the battery, youre good?

    Thank you.

    I believe the manual says that the battery is ready once the lights have gone out.

    Thanks. No manual. Bought mine off an internet trading website.

    Thank you for the help.

    Here ya go...

    4.1 Charging Procedures
    1. Connect the charger to a wall socket (Use the plug set if necessary).
    2. Connect the battery to the charger. If the current capacity of the battery is over 75%, you should power on
    the battery to begin charging.
    3. The Battery Level indicators display current capacity level as the battery charges. Please refer to battery
    level indicator description for details.
    4. The battery is fully charged when the Battery Level indicator lights are off. Please disconnect the charger

    The lights on the battery will be off when charging is finished. The light on the charger will turn green

    Thanks for posting this. #2 procedure was what I was needing: I was trying to charge a battery after a brief flight (battery pack was showing around 85% charge), but when connected, the battery would not show that it was charging. I powered the battery on, plugged it in, and now it shows that is charging as normal.

    Ok I'm new at this but I'm having an issue with my charger on P2V. The green light on the charger is ALWAYS on regardless if it's actively charging or not. Also, the battery has been on 2 bars since I took it out of the box. Charging it has no effect. My understanding is the charger brick light should show red when it's charging and turn to green once battery is fully charged. Regardless, it seems to have no effect on the battery at all. So, I'm figuring the charger is bad right out of box. Thoughts? Opinions? Am I doing this right? Thanks in advance.
