    I had a similar problem with a battery. Is the connection when you plug it in noticeably less firm than the stock battery?

    No I'm pretty sure the connection is good. This is so strange. Maybe a bad battery..

    You can put a thin knife in the male terminals and spread them out. This solved the problem for me.

    I sent the video to 2dogrc and they are sending a replacement. Thinks a cell may have gone bad during manufacturing.

    Will update.
