    Is this a bad battery or am I doing something wrong? I just got this and it isn't charging

    I am not certain because I have a P3 and not a P4 and I might be wrong, but this looks pretty normal to me. Try leaving it plugged in for a while and see what happens (but make sure it is in your supervision). If it doesn't show any charging difference in an hour stop charging it and post here.

    Is it cool? Look in the manual to see what the flashing battery led means

    Not taking a charge. I find nothing in the manual that addresses this issue. Looks like I am returning this one.

    Keep power button pressed for 5 seconds and see what the life of the battery % is.
    And you are right there is no mention of led 1 blinking I the manual while charging.

    Is that a new original dji battery? Or is it a knock off? Remember, knock offs won't work with the new fw

    BarryP, this happened to a few of my Inspire 1 batteries. I contacted DJI about them and they told me the batteries could not be fixed. I'd suggest you contact Amazon and get a replacement.

    Do me a favor give me the serial number and part number, I want to see if it is a fake one, that seller on Amazon is the only one selling at $109, too good to be true

    There are two different P4 battery models. The less expensive batteries are the original model. I believe the only change DJI made between models was to reinforce/redesign the plastic top to prevent it from cracking.

    I think, that the battery is empty.
    Connect it to the charger without pushing the the button on it.
    Try to switch on the battery and switch off and the second press must be longer then 5 second. You will see the battery life.

    Amazon is a safe place to purchase Phantom 4 batteries. If you have any doubts, only buy from authorized DJI dealers. There are many dealers selling on Amazon.

    Hey Barry
    It is an original dji battery, the serial number is in their system. Just a bad battery. At least now you know the dealer is legit.

    It is a heat up indication. Cool it down before charge.

    I have a dead battery. Push the button not even seeing the LED lite.
