ok i bought a new battery charged it blue light came on and got the same error charging error ?
As the VX-7r is an Amateur Radio, you might ask to have this moved to that thread. I have never had a problem with the VX-6R, VX-5R so cannot help.

Hello.

Around the end of life of the battery, it never gets to termination of charge voltage, so it tapers the charge off.
The battery, and battery charging circuit is the same for the VX-5r, VX-6r and VX-7r.
Rebuilding the battery is NOT preferred as the battery forms a seal, making the VX-7r waterproof.
Cheap 3rd party batteries may also not provide a good seal.
Thank you.

I'm just happy as my VX-7R is now 10 years old and on the original battery, although I only use it on rare occasions to monitor.
