    Hello, The charger that came with my Phantom Pro3 appears to not be working. I just got my P3 Pro in the mail today

    Hi

    what is wrong with that ?

    I plug the battery in and nothing lights up. I plug the controlller in and it lights up to charge

    17:44:51
    how about the battery capacity now ?

    1 bar

    over 95%?

    17:45:51
    can you try to open the battery to charge ?

    to see what will happen

    Open the battery to charge? Its the battery for the Phantom, I connect it and nothing happens..

    17:47:37
    yes

    nothing happens?

    Ok, please explain how I should "open" the battery, it is sealed in the plastic cradle.

    17:48:53
    I am sorry

    power on

    I tried powering the battery on, pressing once and a second time for 2 seconds, one bar and the red light turn on. It was connected for 2 hours, still one bar. After 10 minutes the led lights turn off.

    17:50:19
    can you power on it now ?

    Yes. Red light on the button turn on and one singular green bar illuminate.

    17:51:46
    can you insert it to the drone and link your rc and app

    May I please speat to a tech that has a clear understanding of the CHARGER

    Power up the craft with the battery. let the battery drain as much as possible and see if that clears the error.

    Another case of OE and rush to judgement.

    So the battery is charging to full after you let it drain to zero?

    I had almost the same issue after i received my P3P today, when i charged the battery the LED blinks from LED 1 to LED 2(Left-Right), but after a couple of seconds the LED sequence suddenly stops and the LED 4 the one closest to the LED status indicator starts to blink 3 times and it did that in the next 45 minutes, when i checked the battery it didnt charged at all, i dont know what causing it but i had found a solution to charge it.

    1st: remove your charging connection and make sure the LED on the battery is off or not blinking.
    2nd: press the button on your battery once, and press it again and hold to turn on the battery
    3rd: while the battery is on, plug your charging connection.

    Those steps should force your battery to enter into a charging mode and the LEDs sequence should blink normaly(left-right)

    It was not operator error, I followed the "leaflet" of a getting started guide that accompanied the unit. Perhaps you assume too much in your callus judgement. I'm sure it was pretty clear I just pulled the unit from the box that came in the mail and was doing my initial charge, which is outlined in the leaflet in the box. I'm sorry we can't all be all knowing as you apparently are.

    Yes, Blades solution worked, the battery only had one bar out of the box. Pluged it into the craft till the one bar left was blinking, powered it down and connected to the charger. It fully charged in less than an hour.
