    Hey guys,

    I have 6 batteries and two chargers.

    One of the chargers stays green no matter what battery I connect to it (Movi is giving readings of 40-80% so none of them are fully charged.)

    The other charger goes Red when I connect any of 4 of my batteries, however 2 of them cause the charger to flash green and red slowly.

    I really need to figure this out as I'm on a show with it.

    Hey Justin,

    The charger staying green sounds like it's not working/recognising a battery being attached.

    The charger flashing green/red is balancing the cells in the charged batteries. It's important to let the batteries balance, it can take a while though (1hr+)

    What camera/accessories are you running on the MoVI Pro at the moment?

    I figured that charger is dead...haven't had that very long.

    We're actually just running barebones, with a DP7 instead of the Red Touch, so the aux ptap is used.

    Hey Justin,

    Just double check the charger staying green was plugged into the wall.....
    The charger light powers up when the battery is on the plate, even if no AC power coming in...

    It's a good trick that got me this evening on an 8 way board, I thought I'd plugged the MoVI charger in but hadn't.

    Cheers,
    Tom
