My Genio batteries used to charge up fine using the mains trickle chargers. I have noticed recently that both batteries fail to take any charge at all from them.

I have resorted to using the 'quick-charger' which works and gives them enough charge for the day.

Being that I have 2 trickle chargers and both have stopped working at approx the same time, I am more inclined to think that the problem is with the cells in the batteries.


Has anyone had a similar experience?
Why do you thinks the trickle chargers don't work and the quick-charger does?
Can anyone shed some light on this problem?

Andrew.
