I have the 7.5 ah battery that recently stopped charging. Wheb I put it on the charger, it starts off charging, but after about 10 seconds it stops and the charger blinks red. Then when I press the battery power button, it blinks red very fast. Does this every time I try to charge it now. Is the battery dead?

You might try putting it in the refrigerator overnight then try charging it.  I have two batteries a 2 and 4 that will not charge  I have done this about 6 time and it has worked every time.   Good luck

Try putting it refrigerator overnight. Works for me on two different batteries.

Sorry  I have a 4 and a 2.5 A  both blink red and won t charge and I have been putting back in refrigerator over night and have extended the life for at least two years.  Both were out of warranty  Thanks for trying

Refrigerator    It may not matter, but I put them in the refrigerator overnight or for a few hours. It has worked on both batteries for the last two years. Both were out of warranty
. Good luck
