Question about Motorola Lot 13x Radius Sp50 17x Htn9014c 3x Htn9013a 5x Pmmn4013a 6x Hmn9030a
Here are a few thoughts concerning charging a HNN9018 or HNN9044 battery in a SP50 radio:
1) Check the date code on your battery. Rechargeable batteries have a life expectancy of 2-3 years. Motorola brand batteries have a 3-digit number date code. The first number is the year of manufacture, and the next two numbers are the week of the year. Example: 352 would be 2013 (or 2003) the 52nd week.
2) Try another radio/battery in the charger and see if you have the same results.
3) Try charging the battery outside the radio. It will set front to back in the charger. The battery has an arrow on the bottom of it showing you which way to put it in the charger. If the battery charges in the charger without being in the radio, then your radio has a problem with the charging circuitry.
4) Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser, both inside the radio and outside, as well as on the battery itself. This radio's outside contacts are easily covered by film from hand oil and it will prevent the battery from getting a good charge.
5) Test your radio with another known good battery. If your radio is not working with the original battery and it appears to have not charged, it could be a radio problem, not a battery problem.
6) Try your radio in a different charger and see if you get the same result.
By this point in troubleshooting you should be able to determine if it is the battery, radio or charger.

SOURCE: GP 360 Radio Charger
On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)
There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.

Don't know if you'd call it dangerous, but wisedom would be not to leave a radio turned on while on the charger. 1) Shortened battery life due to short charging. The battery will never be fully charged due to powering the radio. 2) Inadvertently pressing the PTT button while the radio on the charger can/will burn out components in the radio including the PA (final amp) which is a costly repair.
Instead of leaving the radio turned on while on the charger, buy a second battery to keep on the charger. Then you only need to swap batteries. Your radio would be able to remain on, and never be on the charger.

You may have a bad battery, or even dirty battery contacts. A few troubleshooting ideas include:
1) Swap the battery to another known good CLS1110 radio and see if the other radio has the same problem when placed on the charger. If so, you have a bad battery. This type of battery typically lasts approx. 18-24 months before needing replaced.
2) If swapping the battery proves to be successful, check the battery contacts on the affected radio for debris, scum or dirt. Clean the contacts on the charger and the radio with a pencil eraser if needed. (The fact you have to readjust the walkie in the charger indicates you might have problems with the contacts.)
3) Try the battery from the known good radio in the affected radio, if the battery charges correctly, you know the radio is fine. If the charger blinks with the known good battery, then you know you have a radio problem.
