I exchanged two of my three batteries for the new models offered by
NEC. My experience has been similar, about 20 minutes tops.

The charger doesn't seem to know what to do with them either. It turns
on for long periods of time, even after I know the cells are charged.

In my opinion the new batteries are suitable only as a power failure
backup and for moving the UL from one outlet to another. Other than
that, they are, as someone said, junk!

Food for thought........what would it take to interface an external
battery pack?
