@Chum
If you want to understand about lithium batteries then google battery university. My take on this is that they are very similar to atomisers, cartomisers and clearomisers. Never drain them too much and never fill them too full.

Once the charger with a battery inserted turns from red to green I always remove the battery.

The eGo batteries have protection circuits to stop them receiving or giving out too much energy. If you manage to over-ride this protection then its not going to be good.

When the green/red led on the charger flickers then your battery is almost full. When its green remove the charger from the battery.

They store and deliver your lithiums at 40% charge and so should we.

If the cell drains down too far you need a special boost charger to reset protection however these are not sold to the public.

The simple answer is to always carry a fully charged spare. At FT prices we can afford to do this!
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time.

It would be good if FT sold eGo batteries, but they don't. They sell ego style batteries with cheap rechargeable batteries inside the barrels. I doubt very much if any FT battery has a protection circuit. Their chargers are also crap. Like all FT stuff, they have a very short built in life. I'm back using my old charger, bought over a year ago from elsewhere because after a week of using this one, light just stays on green and battery isn't charging.

CHUM 209.

This particular battery changes from red to green when battery is fully charged. if you are not getting a light, test a dead battery that you know is in need of recharging and plug it in for 3 hours. If the charger is working, the battery should also work, so it might just be a case of the light not working. If your battery doesn't work or works only for a very short time then like me, you've bought a dud.

I've also discovered that it can help to check the center pin of your battery too. Sometimes an atty will push them in just enough so they don't make good contact with the charger. Pulling the pin out a little bit solves that.

It is a handy device that will help diagnose most problems and give a good idea of a battery capacity.
It can hold data even when powered off, really usefull feature to have when testing power banks capacity while discharging it.
