    Hey people!

    It's my first topic on this forum and it's a pleasure to be part of this now after getting my Phantom 3 Adv. (v2).

    I have just received my second Phantom 3 battery (from eBay, Germany), arrived in sealed box, looks like brand new. However, after plugging it into the bird and connected the app, it showed 2 cycles already. Also i see that the LED's on the battery are weaker compared to the one that was included, also they blink faster when charging. That's about it, they look identically. DJI Chat told me not to worry about this, but i still wanted to get your opinion. Have you ever noticed same thing after getting a new battery?

    Thanks for your answers and see you around!

    EDIT: I just also noticed that the new battery that I received today says Charge 5-40 oC while the OEM one says 0-40 oC

    Please post a photo of both sides of your battery.

    This means someone charged it at least 4 times already.
