    I've had my quad for about 2 months now and have had no issues what-so-ever. But all of the sudden now my charger doesn't charge any of my batteries. I plug it in to the wall and the batteries and no leds on batteries and just a blinking red light on the charger itself. All of my batteries are at one bar also. Did my charger crap out on me??

    Never hear of the issue before, you could try a test, connect a turned ON battery to the charger,
    on the safest place of your house/office, just in case, if charger is damaged probably the red led just
    will keep blinking, another idea use a tester to see the voltage if any on the charger.

    No bars on the batts.?

    Possibly could be they have discharged too low to charge.
    Proper LiPo chargers detect this and will not proceed.

    How? Can't say.

    Yes. I had exactly the same problem and my retailer replaced the charger under warranty. Given the many hundreds of chargers that have been manufactured and sold, there is bound to be the odd bad one out there. Like me, you just happened to get a bad one.
