    The lamp flashes (at intervals of faster than 1 sec).The CHARGE lamp flashing slowly indicates that the charging is stopped because the battery temperature is too high or too low. Remove the battery pack from the battery charger and leave both aside at an ambient temperature of 50ºF to 86ºF (10ºC to 30ºC). Try charging the battery pack again later.

    Note: If the lamp is flashing slowly, charging will resume when the battery temperature increases or decreases until it is within the appropriate range. The lamp automatically changes from flashing to a steady light.

    The lamp is flashing (at intervals of faster than 1 sec) or it does not light up.This may indicate that charging was stopped or it cannot be started because the battery terminal is dirty. This issue may occur when the battery has not been used for a long time.
