I have a DJI Spark Portable Charging Station and it will charge all three batteries fine in the slots. However, one of the batteries will not charge while it is on the drone...I just get the flashing green light and then the red light. The same battery charges fine via USB while on the drone and it has the latest firmware. the other batteries will charge fine while on the drone.

The batteries were recently purchased as was the charging station.

It is not heat as I waited overnight to double-check. I also saw where you can program the battery to the charger (YouTube video) and that did not help.

Did you remove the drone from the charging station and reseat it after cooldown? It might need that process to reset the error.

Thanks.

I tried several ways...let it sit overnight on it despite the red light and also placed it on the charger after it sat for a day of no use (everything cool). Still, get the red light but it will charge fine in the other two slots or on a regular charger.

Maybe try cleaning the contacts on battery and charging station with a microfiber cloth.

Hi...Thanks. I had time to clean all of the contacts and it did not make a difference. I also tried to program the battery to the charger again, making sure the battery was charged.

It is not a deal-breaker since it does charge every other way...just odd and frustrating.
