My guess is the batteries are probably no good. All batteries will only last so long. And it also depends how often they are keep charged and discharged. Basically all batteries require some kind of maintenance (recharging / discharging).

OR the electronic controller is bad.

The batteries are probably no good or your charger is bad. But I say the batteries themselves are bad. All batteries will only last so long. And it also depends how often they are keep charged and discharged. Basically all batteries require some kind of maintenance (recharging / discharging).

Boy, this one is a loaded question.

Could be the charger itself that's defective.

Having a current monitor (Kill A Watt P3), comes in handy to check to see if the wall transformer / charger is drawing any current. That would determine if the charger was working to some degree. The best way is to measure the voltage coming out of the charger itself. It should be low voltage. I would use an digital auto multimeter to check the voltage. The transformer should have written on it somewhere the type of voltage (DC-direct current/AC-alternate current). Be careful not to shorted the end connector as I could damage it.

Could be the cord of the charger that is bad.

Could be the batteries themselves that are bad.

Could be the flashlight internal parts are bad.
