Rapid Charger flashing red green

Postby andyh » Fri Oct 27, 2017 1:17 am

Hi, my last but one standard charger has just died so I have dug out an HTN9803C rapid charger. I don't like rapid chargers, however 1 GP300 charged successfully, but the next one I tried the charger flashes red / green. I have spent ages looking for manual / description etc but no luck. Any ideas what this means?

Ta, Andy.

Red/green in the Impres world means the battery has reached the end of its life cycle.
When exposed to Rapid Fire Growth or Thermal Emergency, two things are lost:
1. Ability to use fine motor skills
2. Presence of mind

I have some of these red/green Impres batteries. For ham radio use, I still get a full day, plus. But in the business/LE world, it's time to toss them. GARY

GP300s never had Impres, can't say I recall a non-Impres charger ever alternating between red and green though. Almost certainly a bad battery, perhaps rapidly alternating between rapid charge and complete because the cells are shot ?
