    I received a new battery from Best Buy today (was on sale for $125). Upon opening it and checking the level, only 1 solid green light came on. Which correlates to 12% -25%. Seems a bit low?.

    I just put it on the charger to bring it up to 50%. Hope this thing lasts...

    Odds are just an old battery. Why worry so much? It's rechargeable..

    You can find the batteries manufacture date by a couple different ways. For example one of my batteries was made July 10th, 2015 and only has 6 flights under its belt :)
