this machine has a light, lost the manual, but Flashing RED light - Charging, a Steady redlight : Done? or does the redturn green when done?

Asked by: wayne
Solid Red means charging, flashing means error. There is no change to colour of the light when full as this charger does not read the battery state.

The pack liner says "Recharges 1 to 4 batteries at a time" but the instructions sheet says "batteries must be charged in pairs" I assume the latter is correct ?
