Hi Family_dog

I have a BentonBX2 Charger that has been brilliant over the last couple years - However I now wanted to charge a Battery and Nothing Happened
the Power light is on but there is nit Charge indicator that comes on - I tried another Battery and still the same thing, I then proceeded to check the Connections on the Crocodile clips and they seem fine, and when up to the Cable connection point and that seems fine,
Can you Help ??

Thanks Brad
