It’s possible that your LiFePO4 battery was not properly stored or transported, which could have caused the battery to become fully discharged and difficult to recharge. However, there are a few steps you can take to try and revive the battery:
Check the charger: Make sure the charger is compatible with LiFePO4 batteries and is working properly. Check the charger’s output voltage and current to make sure it matches the battery’s specifications.
Use a low-voltage charger: If the battery is deeply discharged, you may need to use a low-voltage charger to gradually bring the battery voltage up to a level where a regular charger can take over. This will prevent the battery from overheating and potentially causing damage.
Charge in stages: If the battery is still not accepting a charge, you can try charging it in stages, using a low current at first and gradually increasing the current over time.
Contact the seller: If you’ve tried these steps and the battery is still not working, contact the seller to see if they can offer any assistance or a replacement.
