I recently had a problem with my AR304 charger where all the lights would quickly cycle through constantly when I plugged any batts into it for charging. I left it unplugged for a while and used my single charger and then tried it again later and it came good. Can anyone shed any light on this behaviour?

According to the manual (section 5.13, page 9) the charger was too hot - as they say, perhaps the ventilation slots were obstructed. The solution is to uplug and allow to cool. No permanent damage...

Thanks Jerry...I bought the charger secondhand and it didn't come with a manual. I basically followed those instructions and it came good, it's good to know what the cause may have been.

Jason, I figured you had bought the unit 2nd hand...

even so, this particular effect is hard to find in the manual, hence the citation. I knew it was there and it took still awhile to find it!

Great that it is available on-line; thanks Nacho.

Thanks Nacho & Jerry...I should've done a more thorough job searching the net for the answer. Thanks again for your help.
Cheers,
