Purple LEDs?

Postby Eric » Fri Oct 28, 2016 12:57 pm

Hi!

I tried to charge some brand new Eneloop batteries (used once, in a child toy) and I get purple LEDs :(
I had success charging other batteries from the same pack used in other devices, but I'm wondering why these won't charge...

I tried a discharge/charge cycle last night, the LEDs were first blue, then turned purple again after some time.

I attached the data file, if it could help.

Thanks!

Hi Eric,

It looks like something is messed up with the configuration of the charger.

Have you got the charger manager software installed? If you have, you can click on File->Edit Configuration and then "Save to Charger" and that should reset you back to the defaults.

That's good to hear - thanks for confirming.

I'm curious as to what went wrong: Was this charger working previously, or did you only just get it?

Hi!

This charger worked previously, maybe it's just one of those mystery cosmic event bit flip, who knows...

Rather strange...

If you (or anyone else) see anything like this again, please let me know!
