    We had a robot fall off a table top and the left most light on the battery was blinking red. We reset it and it with a paper clip in the small hole on the battery and it brought it back to life. It seemed to get a concussion?? for lack of a better term. Any body know why the battery does this?

    @Kevin We had a robot fall off a table top and the left most light on the battery was blinking red.

    fast blinking red usually indicates an error, either really low or high battery voltage. There is no need to reset the battery if this happens, in fact, for any battery that has been updated to the October firmware it's best to avoid ever reseting the battery.

    It was most likely low voltage, that could have been checked by pressing the battery level button. If it was low then just place the battery on charge.
