Thanks for your answers. I have come to the conclusion that the battery must be more than 80% charged, so the charger has decided not to add any more!

Semi intelligent it may be, but it would be nice if it decided to switch the charger off when the battery was 100% full. Sometimes I am away from a charging point for a few days and the extra 20% battery capacity would be useful.

After about 6 hours the charger light should go off and stop charging!

If it is not then it may well be worth sending it all back for us to look at.
If you do please send a covering note explaining all of your symptom's.......with the radio and charger that is

Best regards

shame because this is by far the best handheld about IMHO
Dan

Does the "wiggle" and the "shake" help your sailing too?
May be you should try them if you have not before, rumour has it that it can't make it any worse mate

And do you not return calls any more?
Jesus man I want to pay you money

Speak to you soon.
