The charging lamp on the back of the IdentiFINDER does not come on, how do I know if the batteries are charging?

Applies to: Radiation Identifinder (Gamma Spectroscopy) | Tickets Solved: 1 | Rank: 7

The charging lamp does not come on when the alkaline battery pack is inserted because the instrument recognizes that alkaline batteries should not be charged. If the rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery pack is inserted and the charging lamp does not come on, it may indicate that the charger is bad. To determine if the charger is working properly there is an external power light next to the charging lamp and this light should be on when the instrument is plugged in. If the charging lamp is not on, and the external power light is on, it can be determined that the batteries are charging by looking at the top left corner of the dose rate screen. The voltage observed should be greater than 6 to ensure that the charger is working properly. For further questions please contact Technical Support.
