So, I purchased a new Bebop a few days ago that was not from a retailer and after I got everything out and started charging my batteries – I realized one was flashing after 10 seconds of ‘trying’ to charge. Based on my understanding, when Lithium Ion batteries are really low/completely dead on charge (typically from not being used for long periods of time) – the Bebop may do this because it thinks the battery is no good.
I looked up online and found several different methods that would supposedly fix it, and none worked for me (moving to a different outlet, cleaning the contacts with an eraser, etc). I found one method that seemed like it would probably work posted by another Youtube user on how to charge the battery briefly with a different charger (for 1-2 minutes to give it a boost) and then go back to the Parrot Bebop charger – but I didn’t have the right equipment for that.
PLEASE NOTE: This isn’t a recommended method by any manufacturer, and batteries can do crazy things. Please be careful and monitor things closely in case the battery gets hot/etc. Try at your own risk!
