    Hi all,

    Just wondering what it mean when you put a DJI 2 battery on charge and you get a combined red (Bat power LED) and green (Bat charge level indicator) flash.
    Illuminates for about .5 of a second, every 3 seconds.

    Anyone?

    Mark.

    That's weird. Never heard of that. Theoretically the red would mean charging and the green would mean done charging. I would take a look at the cells with phantom asst.

    Yes, Its a brand new battery, purchased from bhphotovideo. I decided to completely drain the battery and try again. Upon another attempt it charged and flew fine. Mind you It did give me an overheat warning in the last 1 minute of flight. Not sure if I should be concerned about that or not. Charged it again last night (all good) and will use it again tonight to see if it give me the same warning. Was just curious if it was a known warning or some anomaly.

    Cheers.
