Default Battery pack or Battery charger? My new canon S45

Hi, dear guys:

I bought a new canon S45 recently, but when I charged my Battery Pack NB-2L with the Battery Charger CB-2LT, strange thing happened. The charge indicator was always flashing with light red and never became steady green even though I charged it for almost 24 hours. Then I tried to use the battery to take some photos, but I just took about 10 pictures in my bedroom, the LCD monitor indicated that I ran out of the battery. Then I bought a new battery in Bestbuy, same thing happened, I don't know why, anyone can help me? Thanks a lot.

Default NB-2L Battery Problem with Canon S45

Dear carelin,

The probability of having 2 new faulty batteries reacting the same way is very low. From my experiences, the indication from the charger is telling me that you have a faulty charger. Bring the battery & charger to where you bought your camera, have them charge the battery with another charger.

I am pretty sure the charger is bad.

Let me know how it goes.

Good Luck!

Default Dear MrBattery:

You are correct, the problem is battery charger, when I tried to use another charger, the indicator didn't flash red light, the light was steady. I have asked them to replace the charger, thanks again.
