SOURCE: roomba 4108 does not charge
Firstly the fastest killer of a battery, any battery, is over-charging. Charge per manufacturers instructions and then don't leave your item on the charger after it's charged. This goes for any device such as cel phones etc.
Second, clean the battery contacts. Our second hand Roomba was so dirty when we got it that the battery wasn't even making contact. Remove the brushes, clean them, clean off all the hair etc and use alcohol to wipe clean the two contact points under the brushes as well. It should take a charge after that.

I have the same problem, after our building had a electricity problem. The electricity spiked when the utility company came to fix a problem. Several adapters in our apartment seem to be affected. Like my Kone, my dirt devil detailer had the same problem: charging light didn't come on, and while it charges, it only gets up to weak power. I got a new charger/adapter and when I plugged it into the base, the charging light was working again.

Do you have the charger terminal, or do you have the charger that you have to take out the battery and charge. Because I have found that my base terminal charger works better than the battery charger that needs the battery to be removed to charge.If you have the terminal charger and the power light is green when it is in the charger I would start from the terminal

Try cleaning the silver contacts on the battery as well as the charging station with a small amount of rubbing alcohol such as an alcohol pad.
Also check to make sure the dirt reserve is completely empty. Also check that the briushes are clear and can move freely.
This 'not charging' is a very common problem with the Roomba and the manufacturers continue to sell rechargable batteries that are no good even though they are aware of the problem.

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!
