Vexilar FL-22HD, when charging the charging light stays red and never turns green...

Recommended Posts

Anybody else who has or is familiar with this situation? I just got a Fl-22 and when I charge the FL-22 with the charger that came in the box with it, the charger light (on the charger) never turns green, even if I have it on for 24 hours and the battery reader shows full, it still has a red light on as if it is still charging. Am I doing something wrong or is it defected?

Do you have the pro pack or ultra pack? If you have the ultra pack, the master power switch needs to be in the "on" position to charge the unit. If not, maybe you have a defective charger. Give the unit a try and see how it works.

I have the Pro Pack. The charger does charge the battery, it just never turns green and always stays red. If I unplug the charger from the outlet and replug it back in, then it turns green showing a full charge.

Make sure you plug it on to the wall before hooking up to your vexilar. If you bring it in or send it in they will replace it free if it is defective.

Mine doesnt turn gree either, nor does the other charger I've used on my unit (FL-8). Does the red LED shut off when charged or does it stay red?

Only Vexilar charger that I can speak about is the one that came with my FL22.

It is labeled V-410 Automatic on the back and this is what it says on the Front:

*Flashing red LED indicator - COnnection Error

*Continuous red LED indicator - Battery Charging

*Continuous green LED indicator- Battery Charged.

I come home from fishing and let my flasher dry out and battery warm up for the night and then plug it in the next morning. It starts out red and ends up green when fully charged.

Mine turns green every time as well. I use it for charging 4 different batteries. If you plug it in to the wall before hooking up to the vex, does it start off green then turn red when you hook it up to the vex? If it is red without being connected to a battery there may be something wrong with the circuitry.

With my vex pack I need to have the power switch on the box turned on. Not the on knob on the vex itself but the on/off switch on the box. This is with the round vex pack that you put the battery inside.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
