    I did some Googling and couldn't find the definitive answer to this question. I just got a Pismo and it came with a battery of unknown past usage and it won't charge.

    I'm not sure if it's the battery that's a lemon or my power board. Is there a way to tell without purchasing one or the other? After being plugged in for a while my battery will flash one light when I press the button, so I take it my power board is working?

    Thanks for any advice. :)

    batteries deteriorate over time and that Pismo is a decade old, you need a new battery

    Happened to me too. It was the battery (no wonder, since it was 8 years old!)
