Md-380 charge light doesn't turn green

Postby Gaz1969uk » Tue Mar 15, 2016 12:24 pm

Hello

Had my radio charging now for 4 hrs and the charge light stays red and won't turn green to say it's completed.

First two charges it took around 2.5 hrs or so and it turned green.

But all of a sudden it won't.

Any ideas pls folks?

Thanks Gary

Hi Gary, the time taken to charge the battery would depend on the state of discharge when put in the charger, the MD380 charger is known to take some hours to charge a nearly empty battery..

Thanks Mike

Yes I have just realised, it turned green after about 5hrs, can't believe they take so long.

Might invest in a battery eliminator to plug into car and psu in house.

Thanks Gary
