My new neato vaccum says charging for two days
When I first saw the Neato advertise it was designed for, but not only, pet fur. I did my due diligence and discovered they DO have a problem with QC. While they seemed more then willing to exchange the units, but alas, to me that's shutting the barn door after the horse got out. It's really just an after the fact, band aid.
Most people familiar with electronics will agree when you put a ni-cad or nmh in service it's best to give it a long charge. However two days would, by most, be considered an indication of a problem. If you have the knowledge and handy skills you could remove the battery (easy), check voltage clean the contacts and using a bulb, motor, or most any other "load". run it down then try charging again. IMHO however more then likely their is a problem with either the charger or, more likely, the charging components within the unit. I've heard most exchange units are used, repaired and shipped out. I'm not a fan of reconditioned items, to often whatever caused them to be returned reappears. When something is intermitten fault isolationg can be nearly inpossible. Needless to say you have past the point of returning so the only option is the exchange route.
