I have a brand new Ryobi kit put battery in the charger the red light goes on and the green light flashers on and off is this charging or should the green light go off until battery is charged.


When the battery is charged the green will be steady on and the red will go off. Flashing green is an indication that it is charging.

hope this helps?

Battery charger red charging light blinks once then goes out


Do the batteries charge? Are they charged? The green indicator normally is the status signal that the battery is charged and the red indicates that the battery needs charging or is charging. If you plug in a charged battery, some chargers will flash red momentarily then go out. This is an indication that the charger checked the battery (red light) and if the charge is good, the red light will go out. I hope this helps you.

Red light flashing on charger


A red light indicates the charger is charging the battery, an amber light means it has switched from fast rate charging to trickle to keep the battery topped off, and green would mean the battery is completely charged. But don't be fooled waiting for green, many times the charger will only be on green for a moment before changing to amber and keeping the battery topped off.

Flashing can be a sign of a problem on some chargers.

A rapid flashing red can on some chargers indicate a bad or shorted battery, or a bad battery contact in the charger itself. If in question, try a different battery on the charger or compare with another charger to determine if the blinking is normal.

Best regards.

Red blinking light


Hi, Ephraim. The flashing red light indicates that the device is showing "low battery". It could be that the LG phone charger fits the charging port on your bluetooth headset but it is not compatible with your device. In order for you to know that it is charging, the device should show a steady red light(means charging).
Please take a look at the table reference below.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
•With the Charger Plugged In
______________________________________________________________________
•Headset Indicator Headset Status
Red-----------------------------------------------Charging (battery level less than 50% charge)
Yellow-------------------------------------------Charging (battery level more than 50% charge)
Green--------------------------------------------Charging complete
----------------------------------------------------------------------
======================================================================
======================================================================
======================================================================
----------------------------------------------------------------------
With No Charger Plugged In
__________________________
Headset Indicator Headset Status
______________________________________________________________________

Three blue flashes------------------------Powering on/off
Steady blue --------------------------------Pairing/connect mode
Rapid blue/purple flashes -------------Connection successful
Quick blue flash --------------------------Incoming/outgoing call
Slow blue pulse --------------------------Connected (on a call)
Slow blue flash ---------------------------Standby (not on a call)
Slow red flash ----------------------------Idle (not connected to phone)
Slow purple pulse -----------------------Connected call muted
Steady red ---------------------------------Attempting to connect
Quick red flash ----------------------------Low battery

Note: After 20 minutes on a call or of inactivity, the light stops flashing to conserve power, but the headset remains on

Hope that'll help you in some way.

I recently puchased an EGET MO-H04CD portable oxygen concentrator and I am having problems charging the Lithium batteries that were supplied with the unit. There are no instructions on how long you have to...


Red light normally means that the battery needs charging. The green flashing light can mean the battery is charging or has charged, and the same with the solid green light. Green in this case is good.

Charge the unit overnight and see what the indicator state is. It should not take more than 8 hours of charging for a Li-ion battery. Once you know what the full state light looks at, then you can tell what the charging indicator looks like.

In all cases, ensure you are using the proper charger with the unit.

My glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean


According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.


Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.



Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:


Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

Solution:
A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service
depot.

  • Flashing green light: The music receiver is switched on.
  • Flashing red/green light: The music receiver is available to be added to your phone.

Digimax i5 problem charging battery


Hello,
■ Charging LED 


Charging LED 
Red LED is on = Being charged
Red LED is blinking = Charging error
 Green LED is on = Charging is complete


● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error.
- The battery is not properly inserted
- The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged
If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the
nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.


If the charging LED doesn't turn to green could mean a signal that the battery is bad or can't charge 100% anymore = too old, needs a new battery. Hope this helps.
