When after fully charging my HP Coil, the bars only show the first 2. It seems to take a very long time to fully charge. Do you think that this means that the battery is on the way out.

Should be OK Trev,
Try the 3 hours on Charge, 30 Minute then 3 hours on again.
Has fixed a number of issues in the past.

Monitor your time between charges and when that starts to drop a lot, its generally time for a new battery mate.

Cheers

My HF coil does the same, though seems to last forever on 2 bars. Will have to try your suggestion Clegy.

they do mate, like all small efficient batteries they have only so many cycles the lower you discharge the higher the degradation rate.

Thanks Clegy.
Goldpick, my coil does exactly what yours does. After charging, even overnight, it still shows 2 bars, but it seems to go on for hours.
Not realy a problem as such.
