battery problem hasselblad H3D
« on: February 24, 2014, 01:30:59 PM »

Hi,
i just bought a new hasselblad battery for my H3D.
and after charging i won't go over the 45% full. i did try the battery reset but still it shows only 45% full.
when i plug it in to the charger after some minutes it goes to tickle charging (blinking led) could it be a faulty battery?

It could be a faulty battery, remember to do the reset with the viewfinder and lens removed.

Make sure you are holding down the flash and menu buttons simultaneously while inserting the battery grip. It should make a sort of whirring sound/beep when you insert it. If it doesn't, try it again.

If it still only shows 45%, then it could just be end of life. Have you tried a different charger? Do you know if the charger charges any other grips ok?

The batteries do indeed seem to need a few charge/discharge cycles before coming up to full capacity.

Also, it has been advised that the very first time you charge the battery (before you ever use it), charge it at least 12-24 hours. Use it all up, then repeat. It is similar to how we use to deal with conditioning batteries. I'm not sure why this is still necessary - or beneficial, at least - for optimal charge performance, but it is recommended.
