I have just bought a phantom 3 battery new when it arrived tried to turn it on it only had one green light on and it only flashed 3 times and battery went off, so I put it on charge and all it did was red flashes on now and again + one green light flashes 3 times and goes off this is repeated every few seconds, I have also noticed that on one side of the battery there is ever so site puffing now I'm at my wits end what to do next

I had similar issues with one I purchased from Target. They were on close-out for $75. It was just old and in storage for too long. Manufactured in 2015 I think.

Just send it back.

Is it true that DJI is no longer selling batteries for the Phantom 3? If so, I would think it might be safer to buy off brand batteries with a good rating because DJI batteries might be old.

Ok, good, luck with it. I have heard good things about Powerextra and they work well if your firmware version allows them.
The only complaint I have heard about that brand is its a really tight fit in the aircraft. I will be looking into purchasing
that brand myself. Thanks for the reply..
