New post AR AR.Drone 2.0 Charger Flashing Red??
Can someone give me any advice as to why this is happening?

I was charging a 1300mAh batter from Global AR AR.Drone Warehouse on Ebay. I was using the adaptor that I purchased from them and my charger that came with my AR.Drone started flashing red after about an hour.

Is my charger broken? Was it the battery?

Any help is appreciated and thanks :)

Mine does the same thing at times - flashes green then red. I've no idea what it indicates and wondered if anyone has an explanation.

If it flashes red it is not charging. I usually take it out of the outlet then put it in and jiggle it around till it turns red again

My guess is that it is balancing when red charging when green.

This is from parrot

Red flashing means one or more cells is not charging or cannot be cherged or balanced (possibly bad connection)

Flashing red/green means the battery is being conditioned (whatever the hell that means)

Red is charging normally

Green is charged

My new AR.Drone battery and charger have just gone to flashing red on the very first charge. :(

I think this is most prevalent with new batteries i.e. they are imbalanced from the factory. You have to keep trying but it should eventually charge properly.

My battery & charger were flaky for a while but eventually settled down and work OK.
