Why your drone battery not charging | 5 simple solutions to try

Drone batteries are very advanced technology. Drone batteries are made from a lithium polymer blend. And because of this, they need to have a much more rigorous maintenance and storage routine than other types of rechargeable batteries. The reason drones use these batteries is that it is the best combination of lightweight and power density – just what something that needs to fly up into the air needs.

    Man, I have been searching far and wide for some good info on these issues, and besides the obvious so-called fixes that rarely work on truly bad batteries there is 0 info. So just for anyone that cannot fix their batteries with the usual tries shown here, the problems with any dead or not charging batteries are 2-fold. First one of the batteries has gone dead and is triggering the lights to flash or do whatever they do to not allow the batteries to get a charge, second thing is the controller on the electronic board has gone the way of the dinosaurs and stopped CONTROLLING. This mostly gives a complete battery. These batteries get hot when charging or using, they are sandwiched together in a 4 pack or so and they transfer heat from one to the other. The batteries are not smart it’s the electronic board that is smart until it is not. So, if you have skills open them up and test for shorts on the board, also test each cell for charging, at 4V plus for the Phantoms. The others should be similar. Peace.

    How are you supposed to update the firmware with a battery that is dead??? I have 2 Mavic Air batteries that are dead, the third in my fly more combo is working fine… I hear similar stories all over – almost sounds as though it were by design… DJI wants you to buy a NEW drone every year or two, just like Apple wants you to buy new iPhone every year or two

    My battery for my mavic air won’t charge or even come on, only one works so I know the charger is good and DJI stop selling these batteries UGH!!

    RUBBISH! he did not give 5 simple solutions! you can’t even update your firmware if you can’t turn on your drone because you only have one battery. useless video!

Thank’s again i will keep on touch to watch your new stuff!

    So lets say I have a dead battery that is not charging, you say put it in the drone.. so I put it in the drone.. It’s dead, what does this accomplish, It’s not like the drone can hold 2 batteries.

  25. Ardent seeker of truth of existednce on June 12, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    thanks for this brief explanation sir. but how do you fix the charging problem after updating firm ware. i have two Mavic pro batteries but only one is not charging.

  26. K. M. on June 12, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    What he is not telling you: They are so "smart" they will die on purpose.

  27. Guy Dunn on June 12, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Have you tried to get a Mavic Air 1 battery? This means after a couple of years if you have dead batteries you can no longer use it.

  28. Mike presley on June 12, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    you cannot update any firmware at all with the battery dead not ony that the firmware already updated with the working battery so with the other 2x batteries that dont work wont work as you know your drone needs to be powered on it wont work at all

  29. Harlem Martinez on June 12, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Hey, I have a f11 RUKO drone today was my first time using it, the battery doesn’t charge and it hace one light one.

  31. James Crawford on June 12, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    What a bunch of babble bullshit from Down Under.

  32. ipscone on June 12, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    How do you update firmware, when a battery wont charge. It won’t turn on, hence it can’t power anything to allow updating.

  33. justin mcdougal on June 12, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Mine has 8 little pins where the battery connects to the drone but 2 are missing what do I do?
