"The charge indicator light (LED), located on the charg- ing stand, will light up red and glow when the char- ger is properly connected to power supply. This light indicates the charger is operating properly. It will remain on until battery pack is removed from charging stand or charger is disconnected from power supply.
After normal usage, 3 hours or less of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.
If both red and orange LED indicators glow, the battery pack is deeply or completely discharged, and 6 hours or longer of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.
Note: If charger does not charge battery pack or orange LED continues to glow after more than 30 minutes of charging, return battery pack and charging assembly to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for electrical check."
So to summarize: red = charging. orange (yellow) = fully discharged battery. orange after 30 minutes - bad battery or bad charger.
Your sidekick 3 will NOT charge anymore .
even if the orange light is on & it says charging
it WILL NOT charge . Try using an old sidekick
&just charge the battery on it & then when its
done charging switch the battery back to the other
The Sidekick 3 is notorious for having the charging port go bad. New battery or charger doesn't help when this is the issue.
YOu can get it fixed for around 100 dollars or ou can get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger. Since you have an extra battery it will work well for you. They are about 30 dollars from ebay.
