Are the contacts corroded? I find a bit of a rub with sandpaper persuades mine to recharge.

Thanks. I have found the solution to my problem. The Flea does not like doing topping up. When I run my Fleas, back and front, almost to empty the charger kicks in immediately. Avoiding corrosion of the contacts is a good tip. Thanks
