With everything becoming battery-powered these days and as many of them being produced as they are now, it’s inevitable that some will show up dead on arrival. It’s something Tyler Edwards has experienced with his REDVOLT BP batteries for his RED Komodo camera. You put them onto the camera, plug it in to charge and nothing. But Tyler believes he’s found a solution to fix his DOA batteries.
In this video, he walks us through his process, which basically involves disconnecting and reconnecting the batteries from the power source about 20-30 times until it just suddenly springs back into life and starts charging normally. It seems like a bit of a strange solution, but it appears to work. I think I have an idea why.
