      Hey guys -- an update on my issue -- I purchased a pair of EB20-12's from
      Digikey, installed them, and I'm basically having the same problem! After I
      installed the new batteries in the pack, I let it charge for well over 24
      hours -- and it still showed a moving "charging icon". I decided to let it
      mow anyway, and it cam back in a bit less than 2 1/2 hours. But now it's
      always "actively charging" according to the icon/image -- even after 24, 48,
      72 hours. I just tried to let it go mow, and I noticed when it left the
      dock the battery icon showed an almost empty image...and it basically cut
      the perimeter than needed to come back due to lack of charge.

      So it seems perhaps the batteries were not the issue -- it is possibly the
      power pack? A loose connection on the dock? I'd hate to spend even more
      money now on a new power pack only to find that's not the issue either.

      Any ideas?
