16088Re: [RoboMower] Possible battery issue? - RL1000
- Jun 14, 2009Hey 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.
