    So I literally got my brand new Tenergy Smart Charger from evike and some new 1600mAh small type batteries along with it. When I plug in the charger, the blinking green light starts flashing as usual. When I plug in the new battery (which is completely dead), the light changes to red as it's supposed to indicate it's charging and I'll put the temperature sensor in between the 2 batteries.

    But just after 5-10 minutes, the green light comes on saying it's charged. Confused, I plug in the battery to my gun and test fire but it's still completely dead. It will charge at first, but then the green light will come on in just a few short minutes, and it will continue to do that.

    Is this normal or what am I doing wrong? Please help, I don't want to have to deal with yet another faulty battery/charger.

    It could be you got a dead battery or the charger is bad. If you can, go back and let them know
