Pulled my virtually new Yaesu VX-6 out of my "bug out" bag to use it for the first time and I am having an issue. First, the battery was completely dead and from what I've heard that is a no no for Lithium Ion batteries. I put it on the charger and it appears to be charging but it has been charging for over 4 hours and not showing fully charged. When I turn the radio on (not while plugged into charger) I get the initial screen showing voltage but I do not get the "battery status" icon in the screen. I have read the manual and Googled it, but cannot find out of this is a "setting" or an indication of something wrong. Any help?
