    for some reason my backpack just stopped today, charged up last night , green light comes on, fully charged up i thought, untill today.
    got back home and put charger in, went green , left in to see if charger will get warm as it normally does for an hour. still cold.

    i plugged charger in again ant backpack going great, lots of power. green lights on backpack itself showing all charged.
    unpluged and dead again.

    charger or battery. ? been looking around for another charger but all different adapters.
    anyone had a similar scenario.

    Might be worth checking the leads to the battery as they sometimes come off so I've heard. Also check the battery at the same time as might be fooked. Those flow swtiches also go bad too so it could be a number of things not just a faulty charger.

    If its new its recommended that you charge a further 3 hours for the 1st 2 charges to prolong battery life after this you can charge normally hope this works .

    The two things I had problems with at the start was the leads loose & the controller harking out.

    its 114 months old, operated this morning, open battery surgery, the positive artery had snapped off its terminal, went to lidl and bought a soldering iron, ive always wanted one. scraped old soldering off terminal, placed wire into terminal hole and soldered it on. opperation was a success. full health check. it has now passed.
