YES. You can find a charger on Ebay for less, But you may not need charger. Do you have any way to check the voltage at the carts plug, where the charger attaches? Has to read same as the battery pack, if much less, charger will not work. Here is link showing a new charger.

Most charger problems are cables from connection to the battery pack!
