Re: Changing batteries

Check the settings. Seems you have a safety limit cutoff set at 2500 mah.

Re: Changing batteries

There are limits that can be programmed on the charger - either the maximum amount of time ( 1 or 2 hours) or the maximum on the mAh's. Mine cuts off after it is fully charged or the 2 hours - whichever comes first. It comes pre-programmed but you can go through the settings and make the desired changes.

Re: Changing batteries

I had the same issue, the charger is getting old and what I used to do before I got a new one was just restart it and it seemed to fully charge them, once my battery was warm I knew it was charged.
