Yes the can go bad.
I still have 9 year old Kodak lithium batteries in good condition, nut I know sometimes my rechargeable batteries last no longer then a year. It is a shame that some camera brands only give a 90 day warranty on the batteries.
To keep your rechargeable batteries in a good condition, give them a charge at least every 3 months. Or always a day before you need the camera. Never try to use speed chargers. I still have a charger capable of charging full within 15 minutes. The barrettes are hot, and when charged that way after 10 or 20 times they are dead.
Just use the charger that came with your camera.
But if you only can shoot a few shote with your battery, buy a new battery.
If the charger is left plugged in longer then 24 hours you may over charge the batteries and they will not work properly. Also You must charge the batteries once a month even if it hasn't been used.
Lift up the back end of the gocart and see if the wheels spin when you pull the throttle. If you only get a clicking sound start by replacing the control modulator. 10 months old your batteries should be still good unless you over charged them. (Leaving plugged in longer then a day) Good luck...
I have this camera, and have had trouble with connecting the charger to the mains (in the UK, using an adapter to plug the two round pin charger into a UK square pin socket). I found I had to withdraw the plug from the mains adapter socket slightly to get it to connect. Once it is powered, the charger light on the camera should flash while charging, and go on steady when fully charged. It takes a few moments to start flashing. It does not flash when the battery is not present, or when the camera is turned on, in play or record modes.
If it isn't a problem with the connection, perhaps the battery has reached the end of its life. Discharging the battery completely can shorten its life. Or perhaps the battery itself isn't connecting because it isn't seated in its mount correctly.
CR2025 coin cells are not hard to obtain- I have seen them in a local thrift mart and on eBay. I don't think it needs this battery in order to charge the main one, but it is worth a try. This battery is just to back up the memory of the settings and keep the clock running.
1) The batteries that you are using may have reached their end of life.
2) You are using higher capacity batteries in a charger that was designed for lower capacity batteries. The charger may be a 1 hour charger that was designed for say, 1500 mAH. If your batteries are 2000 mAH, then after the same hour, the batteries may not have a full charge, and will be damaged if this were the case, and the practice continues.
3) You are using a combination of batteries and charger that isn't compatible. For example, NiCD chargers cannot charge (usually) NiMH batteries, and vice versa.
4) There is always some drain by the batteries themselves, just being rechargeables. Though, this is usually on the order of 5-10% per month, and probably is not the issue.
I would put my money on saying that the batteries are worn out. Try a new a new charger / battery combination. If that works, then either the old batteries or old charger are defective.
Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries
