    I have 32 cycles of each of my batteries. My charger will not show a green light - even when disconnected. It just slowly flashes red. I have on battery at 8% and will not charge it - light on battery go out after several minutes. Another battery at somewhat under full charge will not top off either. Even after turning it on. All the cell voltages seem even as well. Seems like the charger has gone bad. Am I missing something.

    Thanks, Ron

    you may have a bad charger.....i doubt 2 batteries went bad at the same time.

    That's what I thought after checking both batteries. I've ordered a new charger. I''ll post the results when I receive it.

    My new charger failed after cycling my two batteries just 15 times in total. It was replaced under warranty. Clearly there are bad ones out there and, like me, you just happened to get a bad one.

    Received the new charger and all is well again. I've had the charger over 3 months, but I will check on the warranty.
