How long will it go the second time? Do you have a voltmeter to test each battery voltage? Could be one battery in the pack, that is going bad, Let it sit, and it will recover some. How old are the batteries? Does the charger run full 8 hour cycle?

All the battery's are testing good 12
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 years ago.
