Has anyone found that if you try to charge a third party battery in the leica chargers, M8 and M9, they will only charge when fully exhausted. They will not charge if only part exhausted. This doesn't happen with my original Leica batteries, which can be charged when partly exhausted.

What LCT said.


I keep an M8 just for fully discharging such batteries that come from my M9. :D

Leave it turned on with 'sleep' disabled and it will go flat. Rechare and you are good to go. Bit of a pain when travelling though. You should always have several 'real' batts to be sure to be sure!
