Bescor Battery belts Problem - LA-145 - PBR-12XLRNC - ATM-PRB charger

I just bought the Bescor ATM-PRB automatic charger with the Bescor LA-145 battery. The auto charger unit works great with my PBR-12XLRNC battery belt. It lights up when charging and shuts off automatically. -But with the LA-145, the red light does not come on. I cannot tell if charging is happening.

--- Is the ATM-PRB not compatible with the LA-145 battery? ---
Whats the deal? Do I need some other charger?

Also, it would be nice if BESCOR would LABEL the model somewhere on the battery or inside with a sticker or something. I was trying to buy the exact same model of battery belt but could never figure out which one i currently had b/c they don't label them. I ended up buying the wrong one and had to return.

If customers do not complain then companies do not realize something they could easily improve...

Thank you,

I'm not sure about the model numbers you're refering to, but my Bescor "Smart" charger (I think it's the ATM-PRB) works well with all my different brands of 12 volt battery belts. Usually, if the red light doesn't come 'on', the battery doesn't need to be charged. Even then, if I leave a battery connected, the light comes 'on' every now and then, just to 'top off' the battery.

At least that's how it works for me!

Cheers!

Mark

I have learned that the LA145 needs 12 volt charger and the one i have is 14 volt and that i will have to pay $60 bucks for another charger to be able to use this battery...

That stinks. This is becoming way too expensive.
