High Voltage Warning

I have been using the stock re-chargeable battery on my Etrac for the last two months with no problems. This battery was brand new in March of this year. Yesterday when I powered the Etrac up, I got a warning saying the voltage was too high and the detector would not power on. I turned it on and off four or five times and it eventually turned on and operated perfectly. I came home and put it on the charger overnight and checked the voltage with my tester. It read 11.95 volts. Any ideas to what might have happened. My worst nightmare is having to send it in and being told it can't be fixed.

I've had rechargeable batts fail. One short circuited during charging and almost caused a house fire. So with that in mind, I really don't like the etrac charging system-- charge should shut off when the battery is charged, like on the ctx.

Do you have a spare? The etrac batt that takes alkaline? That would give some direction.

Yes, I have the alkaline pack that I always carry with me. Will take your advice on unplugging charger. Thanks
