My charger do the same thing. I talked with the service people at Ryobi who said that the red led never goes out no matter how long you charge it. They suggested just charge it for 12 hours and then disconnect. Pretty dumb system, but that's apparently the way it is.

red is charging, green is done, amber is either hot or bad battery ive seen that with both symptoms when on with the green. dont run your battery down to the limit and always keep the battery charged this will prolong the life of the battery, dont store dead batteries in other words.

NO! Never charge lithium batteries in a charger designed for nickle based batteries like the NiHi your old charger was meant for. Ryobi did design the new Lithium charger to be backwards compatible so you can charge your older 18V NiHi batteries in the Lithium 18V charger.
Also note, NEVER miss-match the voltage, for example, make sure you are not trying to charge 12V batteries in an 18V charger unless the manufacturer has specifically stated that the charger is capable of multiple voltages.
