    Hi,

    I got a new genuine DJI battery. I loaded the 1.6 firmware onto my SD card (as per directions from the DJI online help person) and let it update in the AC.

    Battery seems fine, however I have recharged it and it is still showing zero times charged.

    Is there likely something wrong with it or is this common?

    cheers,
    Paul

    It seems to only increment each time 100% of the battery has been used. If you charge it from 50% to 100% (for example), it will not increment sometimes.

    The app shows full charge cycles ... Two 50% charges would equal 1 full charge.

    Okay thanks. yeah, I did not take it down past about 60 percent before charging so that makes sense.

    Although my battery that came with the Phantom had 1 charge on it from the factory and I assumed this would have too.
