Canon 511a battery problem solved

After charging my 5D batteries they would intermittently discharge rapidly / not hold charge.
The problem was traced to the battery charger, I have two one was working correctly and the other not.
The charger that was not operating correctly had one of the spring loaded contact pins stuck down causing a poor contact, once released the charger started to operate normally. Glad I did not order two new batteries before I found the real problem.
So check those contacts if you are having battery problems Smile
