My equipment is little over a month old. I went to charge the 7.5Ahr battery that I know was about 25% on the Rapid Charger and I went to check it after about 30 min and I see the all the 4 LED's flashing in sequence - like no charge in battery (no lights on battery). I then unplug the charger and put the battery back on and its showing 4 solid green lights now. What's up? 

Thanks

Are you sure the battery wasn't almost at a full charge when you observed it? The light sequence changes a few times during the charge.

The charger won't charge the battery if it's almost full. This is normal and something others have noticed as well, so if the charger was almost done charging when you removed the battery, that would explain why it wouldn't charge when you put it back on.
