i have the free nimh 1400 mAh AA batteries from staples w/the charger. the charger light never turns green, no matter how long i leave the batteries in there for.

i know there is a green light because it did it for AAA batteries. but only once. since then no matter what battery i put in the charger, the light stays red.

Any ideas? also, how do i check what is charge on the batteries?

How long have you left them in there? Days?

Mine take up to 12 hours to charge.

I have an Energizer charger, but I charge the Maxell batteries in them.
