Question about Mint Plus Turbo Charging Cradle
Trying to use Mint Plus with the Turbo Charging cradle. At first I get the slowly blinking red light, indicating that it's charging. Soon after, I get a series of six quick unhappy beeps and the Mint Plus unit flashes the three red dots. The turbo charge cradle has the solid blue light the whole time.
Cradle and contacts are fine. Cradle circuit is nothing but a reed relay and few wires, relay closes on proximity to robot's body, therefore no voltage on contacts before robot is close to cradle.
There is a thermistor inside of battery, and mine was bad. I removed it and now I am charging the battery from my bench power supply at about 220 ma current, overnight, and it works. Probably the solution is to get a new replacement battery, but the one with the thermistor inside (OEM), easily recognized by the third wire, and all should be fine, assuming that nothing else is wrong with charging circuit or power adapter (12v/1A)
Hope this will give you some ideas of where to poke.
Once successful, please post your solution.

The Mint needs to be reset.Place Mint on charger and press the on/off button and the mop/duster at the same time. After pressing all three you will here a buzz, the alarm should stop and the red light will go on, indicating the Mint is charging. If the alarm goes off reset again. You may have to do this 3 or 4 times. Keep it charged to avoid this issue.
