Charge time is 18hrs. If you left it on and it was flat, imediately charge for 40hrs.

Brentonb, In the event that you don't get a direct answer (which is likely, since this is a pretty obscure question) I suggest you troubleshoot it this way. Remove the bad battery. Use the charging device that came with the lantern and wire it temporarily to the device in place of the battery. This will supply the correct voltage, but takes the possibly shorted battery out of the circuit. If you are certain you have the polarity correct and you know that the charger works, then you have your answer. good luck.

I found that bashing it with a hammer numerous times helps to alleviate some of the frustration plus what does it hurt? Not like the damn thing was working anyway
