    Battery won't charge

    This is the first time I've ever had this problem....
    I called Traxxas support last night to try and figure out why my evx-2 won't turn on.
    Anyway, turns out one of the batteries was bad. Or not bad, I don't know. The one battery (Traxxas power cell 3000mah nimh) will not charge. When I put it on the charger (ez peak) The light blinks red slow like it should but it turns green within a few seconds even though I know the battery isn't fully charged.
    What is the problem here???

    try a different charger if it does the same thing then its about done had it. how many cycles are on the pack? have you checked to see if the battery is like competely dead or does it still have power in it?

    Is it brand new? When my batteries were brand new, the traxxas charger would not charge them. It did exact;y what you describe. So The first charge I did on the extremely slow charger included with the kit. Then they worked fine.

    Then I was waiting for parts for 6 weeks +, and they did the same thing. I cycled them on a superbrain and they charge fine on the traxxas charger again.
