GL2 Charger

I notice my GL2 battery charger does not charge the battery as fully as my GL1 charger. Anyone else notice this? Though it charges the battery to full, once in the camcorder the battery level does not take long to drop from the first mark level. I only use the GL2 charger to run the camcorder without the battery, not for charging.

Maybe it's just the indicator and not the charger. The GL2 might round down any charge remaining values, and maybe the GL1 rounds up? Dunno.

Nope, when placed in the same camcorder, GL2, the battery lasts longer before going down a mark.

From the same battery, you should be getting better endurance on the GL2 than the GL1.

I probably am. That was never the problem. The GL2 charger is does not seem to be charging as well as the GL1 charger.
