Hi,

I bought a new battery P3 from a local supplier, first charge took a very short time to complete. I took it out for a flight and One of the cells shows as low voltage in the pilot app and the total battery mAh shown on the pilot app is only 1500 ish, i didnt notice this at first though, what i did notice was that it depleted really quickly...

I thought maybe i hadn't charged it properly and put it on charge again... it completed in 15 minutes and i got an overcharge warning light (led 3 on the battery flashing 2 x per second), when i put it into the phantom 3 and connected the pilot app thats when i noticed cell 1 was red (low voltage) and the mAh was way off...

Unless anyone has any bright idea's I take it my new battery is knackered and i need to send it back to the dealer o get it replaced...

was the battery cooled down before you re-charged it?

It was, i left the field, drove home and the AC was on in the car all the way home. It was room temp to the touch when i plugged it in to charge.

Oh and that first flight... it didnt actually get warm... thats how little power there was to discharge.

Ok, they are new batteries so I am breaking them in. Maybe I'll run one down a little further tonight
