USB Charger flashing between Red and Green
I have 5 different batteries for both of us, and find 2 particular batteries are causing the USB charger to intermittently flash between red/green when charging.

The charger does appear to be fully charging the batteries still. Anyone else experience this and should I look to replace the charger...

RE: USB Charger flashing between Red and Green
My ego charger has always done this. It's normal. It's just the charger checking the voltage and then continuing to charge. Once fully charged, it obviously stays green

Thanks for quick reply, just thought it was strange it only seemed to do it with 2 out of the 5 batteries.

Re: USB Charger flashing between Red and Green
Mine tends to flash between red and green about 20 mins before the end of charging, then goes to permanent green when complete.

Could be those two batterys have a slightly higher internal resistance than the others.

If their charging fine then its nothing really to worry about.

RE: USB Charger flashing between Red and Green
Also noticed this with my new ego twist. It'd flash green every so often then go back to red. It eventually stayed at green and it's fully charged.

Sounds like its seeing a current drop in the charge cycle and showing the green to say its fully charged and switching off the charger, voltage drops and thus causing the charge cycle to re-engage and thus showing red again

Nice graph below

Of course the red and green lights may be just indicators, doesnt actually mean its turning the charger off just changing the state of the lights but the fact it goes red again does indicate it might be, all depends how clever and expensive the charger is Undecided

RE: USB Charger flashing between Red and Green
My charger does that when the battery is nearly fully charged. Just leave the bat on charge until you get a solid green.

Re: USB Charger flashing between Red and Green
I was under the impression that genuine ego batteries will cause the charger to flash green every 5 seconds whereas a similar battery (riva etc) just stays red til fully charged. I could be wrong though.
