Welcome @srbnionel

Is this a new battery or the battery has not been used in awhile?

If battery is indeed fully charged, perform a reset on the Tello. If that fails to resolve the issue, update the firmware.

Is it overheating? Does the bottom shell of the Tello feel warm?

If not, update the firmware again as the file may be corrupted initially.

No it is not overheating. It seams that is a problem with battery, show on the application that is discharge , but when i put it into the charger it shows that is fully charged. I try to charge the baterry when it was inside drone, but didn't work, led is continuous red.

Solid red indicates a critical error...

Believe the Tello Boost Combo comes with (3) batteries. Same issue with all three?

What's the spec on the charger that you're using (should be a minimum of 1A). Micro USB connectors should be firmly seated on both ends of the cable (e.g. into AC adapter, into charger, into Tello's micro USB port).

Use a quality charging cable with a higher gauge wires.

Short of these steps, exchange the unit from where you purchased since it's new.

Sorry it didn't work out right out of the box.

Hopefully the next one will be flawless so you can start to enjoy what the Tello has to offer.

Good luck!

I too just bought the Tello Boost Combo. It seems like the Tello triple battery charger is very poor. Only one slot seems to charge consistently. Of course the charger onboard the aircraft works fine. I am planning to just by the Smatree to solve the issue.
Also, as someone else mentioned. I’ve been using a larger charger like for an iPad. That seems to help.

It may have been operator error. I don’t think I had the batteries fully engaged. If I make sure to seat them well, it works fine. My bad!
