I've been having the same problem myself. The charger is apparently built into the roomba main board. From what I've read there are two MOSFETs U2 & U4 that can go out and require replacement to fix the problem. More info here

Reset the Roomba: hold down "spot" and "dock/demo" for fifteen seconds, then release and listen for the tune. Then charge the Roomba overnight. The next time you run it, the unit should run longer. If not, call support and let them know you may have a battery problem. 1-877-855-8593 (I strongly encourage you to have the Roomba with you if you call.)

Try cleaning the battery contacts with a little rubbing alcohol or contact cleaner on a foam swab, or a bit of paper towel. Take a litle time, it doesn't always dissolve instantly. (Don't use a pink pencil eraser, it would scrub off the plating that prevents corrosion) Clean both contacts on the battery pack and both of the contacts in the Roomba. Make sure the battery is oriented correctly when you put it back in. Also clean the charging base contacts and the corresponding contacts on the Roomba itself.
I'm not sure entirely sure what you're trying to recover - the new battery pack, the old battery pack, or the Roomba itself - but since you can swap parts back and forth, you can clearly isolate the problem. The old battery pack might be rehabilitatted if you have the equipment to recondition it, but if it may not work. The new battery shouldn't have been harmed that easily.

Generic works fine, and that charger does too. If your charge light and dock light are on then you'll be okay.
Save cash, go generic!
