    124 300 td passed out after exertion, won't revive, eating battery.

    Well, clear a path to the bottom of our stairs, the thing fettled itself. The next day it kept the charge, the day after the red battery light went out, the next four days it charged and kept it. Let's see. Thanks for all your help. Have a Cool Yule. Cheers, Paul

    124 300 td passed out after exertion, won't revive, eating battery.
