How to Avoid the Dreaded Battery Connection Error Message?

The smart battery communicates with the DJI Inspire 1 via serial port protocol and contact pins connector. If the contact surfaces are dirty or not in full contact, you can end up with error message at best and potential loss of power at worst.

Simple preventive maintenance and pre flight check can avoid this potential problem. Keep your battery’s serial ports clean and make sure the connecting pins on the Inspire 1 are not pushed or locked down.

    Hi,

    I’ve notice that one of the connection pins out of the four is missing!

    should I do anything about this?

    Regards,

    Allan
