Hi I have makita DC1411 battery charger not sure if it is working correctly as when I put a battery on charge it does not seem to charge the battery fully,not sure if the batteries I bought on eBay are duff or is it my charger. Can anyone tell me how to check if it is working correctly? :dunno:

i would never ever buy second hand batteries unless you fully know there condition
a fully charged battery will show about 20% more than the rated value when fully charged but this means very little as you need to know what % off the charge it will hold and for how long it will hold it
you can fully charge a say 18v battery and get 20v and within 2 mins its flat
in general a battery will loose say between 15-40% off capacity a year dependant on quality and use

I put the battery's on charge when I got them (I got 2) and I have charged them both a few times since I got them but now even after a two hour charge although the charger light goes to green there is very little charge in the battery. Yes I only have the one charger.

hard to tell really
2 duff batteries unusual but possible
you would expect any battery to do some work as they are part charged in manufacture for testing more so for li-ion
unfortunately without buying or trying another battery or charger you stuck with assumptions as to cause :lol:
yes very good assumptions and almost certainly correct buuuuuttt :lol:
