    Exclamation ANother Battery concern!

    hey, my flat 5000mah 7 cell series 5 battery has been charging for the past few days, and it still wont turn green on the charger. Any ideas on what the problem is?

    I have the overnight charger

    Those overnight chargers are kind of "dumb." Do you have a voltage tester?

    See if the battery works in the car. If your run time and performance are normal, then the battery is getting a full charge. The thing is, it's not a good idea to leave it on the charger that long.

    Not sure what your budget is, but I really recommend a decent smart charger. It's pretty much the best investment you can make in this hobby!
