    I just got my Phantom and have plugged in the batttery for charging. It has been on the charger since about 5 PM yesterday.

    The green light is still blinking.

    How long does it take to charge one of these?

    The lights should be all Green steady, correct?

    Thanks!

    Did you plug the balance plug in the side of the charger along with the main cable?

    Typically takes over an hour with the DJI charger.

    Thank you! I then figured it out as I found the battery charging manual online. My Phantom box didn't come with any instructions! Are they all like that? Dang!

    If you are serious about this hobby and want to prolong the life of your batteries, invest in a proper balance charger like a Turnigy Accucel.
    The stock charger is one of the better bundled chargers I've seen but lacks certain features such as a charge monitor, discharge cycling etc.

    A good charger will last you years and is worth every penny.

    All manuals are online only. No instructions come in the box.
