Look at the little switch in the battery compartment and see if it got switched from NIMH to Alkaline.

Then this begs the question: WHY ARE YOU CHARGING THE BATTERIES IN THE SCANNER:confused::confused::confused:
Not safe for the scanner at all.

I always have. It was working fine charging. PERFECT, even.. My finger must have slipped. You see the size of that little troublemaker? ( battery choose switch ) Besides, I got 3 other battery lovers that need charging too.
